    LOWELL Green Mountain Power is offering public tours of its wind project on Lowell Mountain this summer.

    Theyre booked for June; more tours are being offered in July and August.

    A spokeswoman for the project said its an opportunity to see and hear an operating utility-scale wind facility and learn how Green Mountain Power is making electricity for 24,000 Vermont homes.

    The tours last about 90 minutes, and visitors will be able to get out near the base of two of the 21 turbines. Tours are being held most Wednesdays in July and August at 10 a.m. Saturday tours are being offered July 27 and Aug. 31 at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
