Some of Northeast Wisconsin’s first wind power turbine generators have been completely dismantled in Kewaunee County. Wisconsin Public Service Corporation began removing the 14 windmills in the Town of Lincoln just after they were taken offline at the end of September. WPS Senior Communications Specialist Matt Cullen says the actual removal process went quickly.
Cullen says land restoration will be finished by the end of November about a month ahead of schedule. The Town of Lincoln windmills were originally scheduled to remain in operation until 2029. New additions of solar and more advanced wind power generators by WPS made the Kewaunee County facility obsolete.
