The nation’s first real wind farm – multiple power-producing wind turbines feeding into the grid – was built in New Hampshire, on Crotched Mountain in Francestown in 1980. It was a research project from UMass-Amherst; I have written about it before – read the details here.

Why do I mention this? Because the U.S. Department of Energy just released an online timeline about the history of wind power in the U.S. and we’re not mentioned! Outrage!!!!
