Bartlett's Farm History


In the early 1980s, a wind energy company signs a lease to build and operate a series of wind turbines at Bartlett’s Farm. However, as the federal tax incentives evaporate, the energy company ceases maintenance and eventually removes the project. Nevertheless, it is an enlightening experience. The Bartletts see the potential benefits of harvesting renewable energy for themselves and will later continue their foray into renewable energy.
