Located north of Oak Ridge and about thirty miles northwest of Knoxville, Buffalo Mountain Windfarm was built in the 2000s as part of the Green Power Switch program of the Tennessee Valley Authority. The windfarm consists of eighteen turbines and generates a total capacity of twenty-nine megawatts, which is enough to provide power to about 3,800 homes. It is the only windfarm in the southeast United States.
