T-Mobile has opened its third US wind farm in Vermont, as part of an agreement with Avangrid Renewables.

The 158MW Otter Creek wind farm is expected to generate more than 504,100MWh annually, or enough energy to power 60,000 homes a year.

The telecommunication companion says the new wind project will support its goals to source 100% renewable electricity and comes as an add-on to its green portfolio, which includes eight energy contracts with four solar farms and two more wind farms in Kansas and Oklahoma.

In an announcement, the firm also suggests it remains ‘the only major US wireless provider’ to have its carbon reduction goals approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative, an institution created from the collaboration of CDP, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
