West Central Wind Turbine in Testing Phase

West Central School Superintendent Charles Mellon gave the school board members an update on the progress of the wind turbine.

“It is in production,” Mr. Mellon reported. “They’re just fine-tuning some issues that we have as far as how many watts can actually go out to the grid at one time so they’re making some final adjustments on that. We’re still in the middle of the 120-hour commissioning process. We’re in that phase right now and hopefully we’ll be in full compliance here very soon.”

The turbine has been in operation since the last week of March.
