One of the turbines at the Fenner Wind Farm hasn’t been spinning since Wednesday night, because one of its blades has apparently been badly bent.
It’s located off Peterboro Road in Madison County. A spokesman for Enel North America, the company that owns the site, says they aren’t sure how it happened. General Electric, who made the turbines, has a team on the site looking at the damage.
A person who lives near the site says it sounded like a car crashing when the blade broke. There no word yet on when it’ll be fixed.
