Has the idea of built a wind turbine electricity farm everbeen discussed. I only know it is really windy on Mt. Washington. Is there any reason this could not be done? t

Nope, no reason it can't be done.

They are breaking ground this spring on a massive wind turbine project that will cover the White Mountains in wind turbines.

It may be feasible but I doubt it would cover the White Mountains as only a fraction of the state's ridges, about 5 to 7 percent, are suitable for wind generation. Required heights and access to power lines limit where turbines can go.

How long would it take for the generated electricity to pay for the cost of the project ?

I think the key question is what would be needed to get it constructed and to prevent damage and icing. Every attempt on a small scale we have seen over the past few years did not last very long - a few days.
