(ALL RIGHTS, ALL USES) New wind farm under construction along a ridge northeast of Williamsport, Pennsylvania. There are several wind power projects operating in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and several future wind farms planned or under construction. The most productive wind energy regions generally fall in mountain or coastal terrains. The northern portion of the Appalachian chain is one of the areas with the highest potential for wind energy in the Eastern United States. This is also the region of massive gas drilling and fracking in the Marcellus Shale Formation. A new gas well head pad can be seen just beyond the construction site for a new wind turbine.
