West Central Wind Turbine Testing to Begin March 26th

The wind turbine at the West Central School campus has been built, but is it operational? Superintendent Charles Mellon was asked to give an update on the progress of the turbine.

“I think our utility company has finished their work and it looks like March 26th is when it could be started up. The people scheduled for us fly over from Germany and March 26th is when they would arrive to begin the commissioning process, which is 120 hours of documentation of things and making sure everything is running properly.”

Mr. Mellon and the school board are hopeful that it will be up and running during spring break beginning March 26th.
