Waverly wind turbine construction to begin Monday  

Credit:  Written by Jackie Manternach, Producer | www.kwwl.com 27 July 2012 ~~

Three years after a Waverly wind turbine fell apart during the final stages of construction, construction for the replacement turbine begins.

During February 2009, Industrial Contract Service, Incorporated assembled two wind turbines located northeast of Waverly.

Near the end of the construction of the second turbine, a construction issue occurred, and the blades, hub, and generator came crashing to the ground.

Since then, the company and the utility have been in the midst of a lawsuit.

The court battle is not expected to end until 2013.

However, Waverly Light and Power has finally announced that the construction of the second wind turbine will start on Monday and will last about two weeks.

The construction crew will also be replacing the generator on the turbine that did not fall down.

For now, Waverly Light and Power will use funds designated for renewable energy projects for the reconstruction.
