Perkins wind turbine drops blade  

Credit:  Susan McMillan, Sandusky Register, www.sanduskyregister.com 29 November 2010 ~~

For the second time in two years, Perkins Schools officials shut down the wind turbines on school property after a mechanical failure.

This time, bolts on one of the blades broke, which released the blade. The blade dived to the base of the turbine.

The first malfunction happened on a gusty cold day. In that case, the turbine shattered, shooting debris into the parking lot.

Read all about it in Tuesday’s Register.
