Friday night’s storms caused damage to one of the wind turbines on Conneaut’s waterfront. These pics were taken by Polly Finlaw Saurwein. It appears that one of the blades of the wind turbine have been blown off either by a lightning strike or high winds. The turbine is on the wastewater treatment property at the foot of Broad Street.

According to a 2009 press release, the turbine is owned by NexGen Energy Partners and was expected to provide about 60% of the energy needs of the Conneaut Waste Treatment Facility.
