Grand Etang turbine comes tumblin’ down

One of the wind turbines at Grand Etang snapped in half in the high winds Tuesday night into yesterday morning.  Nova Scotia Power is investigating why.

No one was at the site at the time and nobody was hurt.  Peak wind gusts at the Grand Etang weather station reached peaks of over 164kph yesterday morning.

The 660 kilowatt turbine was erected in 2002.
