Jiminy Peak Wind Turbine
Hill provided electrical engineering support to the Jiminy Peak Wind Turbine project. In order to make this project economically viable, as much generation as possible has to be consumed on-site at Jiminy Peak. Snowmaking equipment provides a load during the winter months. However, a summer load had to be available to take advantage of the on-site generation during the off season. Hill was instrumental in re-designing the substation at the base lodge to provide this on-site summer load. Hill also provided support service for the installation and testing of the wind turbine.
