The Somerset Wind Farm is a wind farm in Somerset County, Pennsylvania with six GE 1.5 MW Wind Turbines that began commercial operation in October 2001. The wind farm has a combined total nameplate capacity of 9 MW, and produces about 25,000 megawatt-hours of electricity annually, which is roughly a 30% capacity factor.[1] The wind farm was constructed by NextEra Energy Resources, based in Florida.[2]

The wind farm is just one-half mile (0.80 km) south of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, which makes its 215-foot-tall (66 m)[3] towers easily visible to turnpike travelers.[4]
