Hyannis Country Gardens
Hyannis Country Gardens in Cape Cod put up a Northern Power Northwind 100--the same as the Medford school--in its parking lot. Having an excellent wind resource, the turbine supplies more electricity than the garden center consumes. The owner expects that it will pay for itself in about seven or eight years. It took a lot of work to get the approvals--about three years of community meetings and impact studies. But now, more neighbors are interested and supportive, according to the garden center's co-owner, Diana Duffley.
