An Antelope County wind tower broke off near its base, toppling over the remaining sections and sending its blades crashing into the ground.

The wind tower is located northeast of Neligh about 3/4 mile south of 528 Avenue and 852 Road. It is part of the Upstream Wind Energy Project.

Property owners in the area said they noticed the tower had fallen on the morning of July 5.

“No one was injured in the incident and the damage was contained to this tower,” according to Beth Conley, Invenergy vice president of communications.

She was unable to comment on several questions due to the ongoing investigation.

“Invenergy is investigating the incident at Upstream Wind Energy Center,” Conley said. “One turbine was impacted and the wind farm remains fully operational and is generating electricity.”

This story will be updated as information becomes available.
