TREC windmill damaged  

Credit:  Erie Times-News, www.goerie.com 16 October 2011 ~~

Part of the windmill at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center, 301 Peninsula Drive, fell to the ground Saturday. The portion of the windmill’s turbine, called the alternator, fell off between noon and 12:30 p.m., said Dorothy Krupa, assistant park manager. “Thankfully, no one was in the vicinity when it happened, so no one was hurt,” Krupa said. Wind gusts up to 38 mph were reported in the area around noon, but Krupa said she wasn’t sure high winds caused the damage. The windmill was installed in June 2007 and provides some of the center’s electrical power. The center will maintain regular hours while the windmill is repaired, Krupa said.
