Killington Resort is enrolled in the Cow Power program, a completely local form of renewable energy made in Vermont. Staying with Vermont tradition of buying local, the K-1 Express Gondola will be powered solely by manure from local dairy farms. In the process, this reduces greenhouse emissions produced by cows and expands the use of the readily available, renewable resource in Vermont.
In 2012, we purchased 300,000 kilowatt hours of Cow Power to run the K-1 Express Gondola year round.
For 2013-14, we are purchasing additional kilowatt hours that will allow both the K-1 Express Gondola and the new Peak Lodge to run on Cow Power.
