Small Wind Project Almost Done

The small wind project is almost complete. We’ve had a big tower sitting on our hill for the last month first waiting for the turbine itself to come, and now we’ve been waiting for the go ahead from our electric cooperative, Lake Region Electric. We’re still looking to finalize our interconnection agreement and also have the electrical work inspected for the final ok. The last thing after that is to get a crane here to tilt the tower up and hopefully the wind still blows.

Last month RWP put together the tower and affixed the turbine. The tower came in a bunch of pieces and needed to be assembled in the snow:A completed 110-foot tower:
