Wind Turbine Project Delayed at West Central Schools

The wind turbine project has been delayed at the West Central School Corporation.

“The components that are coming from Germany are here, but the tower itself is being manufactured in Tennessee. That component is being delayed as far as the manufacturing date. I think they had some issues at their factory so we’ve been pushed back to the week of January 9th,” said Superintendent Charles Mellon.

He said the delay shouldn’t affect any funding of the project

“It does delay, about a month, the revenue stream that would be coming in from the turbine, but in constructing the bond payment, they are very light the first couple of years, as far as the principle to be paid. I think we’ll be all right there. It was purposely structured that way just in case something like this would happen.”
