Kirklees Council Civic Centre turbine still broken

A Kirklees Council wind turbine is still out of action – 11 MONTHS after it broke down.

One of the two turbines on top of Civic Centre 3 has not worked since last March. This week the 27ft windmill was still slumped over on the roof of the town centre building.

The Examiner contacted the council press office at 10.59am yesterday to ask for a comment.

None was forthcoming.

Kirklees installed the six-kilowatt turbines in 2006 to raise awareness of renewable energy.

The windmills cost £101,000 to buy and install.

In 2008 the turbines brought £2,078 into Kirklees coffers, but cost £6,431 to maintain and repair.
