30+ windmills turned off in Madison County for nearly a year, as owners wait for mechanical part: Your Stories

Waiting on a part to be made in Germany, the owners of the largest windmill in Madison County have had their turbines turned off for nearly a year.

The Munnsville Wind Farm, just north of Route 20, expands from Madison to Oneida County, covering parts of Madison, Eaton and Stockbridge near Boukville and Morrisville.

People who can see the turbines in the distance have written the Your Stories team, concerned that they’ve been turned off for so long.

Madison Town Supervisor Ronald Bono is hearing similar worries.

Bono says, “They are concerned for several reasons. They’re afraid they’re just going to be left there and not be decommissioned and that type of thing. That’s not the case at all.”

The supervisor says owners E.On have communicated with him that they’re waiting on a mechanical part to be made and shipped from Germany.

Once delivered, the part will be installed at the farm’s substation, which powers all of the turbines.

Bono says, “It’s due to be here first part of August. We expect to be up and running mid-August of this year.”

Bono says E.On has also followed through with their contract, making their scheduled payments in lieu of taxes to the appropriate towns in Madison County in January.
