We aim to source supplies and services locally for our operations, as well as hire from the community.  At Kingsbridge 1 Wind:

  • We employ one permanent employee at the facility, and engage the services of three dedicated resources, representing Vestas, who are responsible for maintaining the turbines.
  • We pay approximately $54,000 in property tax each year, contributing annually to community tax bases, supporting the improvement of infrastructure, roadways, and community services.

We give back where we live and work by supporting local organizations and our employees’ community participation through our corporate giving programs.
