Varian’s project, which was permitted five years ago, pushed the city to consider building its own wind turbine at the industrial park. After Mayor Carolyn Kirk took office in 2008, she appointed a Clean Energy Commission, which recommended the industrial park site. That site, according to years of data accumulated by Varian testing, proved to be one of the optimal places in northern Massachusetts to construct a wind turbine. The average wind speed is more than 15 miles per hour, and the land is in a wooded district, close to Route 128 and away from city neighborhoods.
