Wind turbine failure at Western Reserve High School under investigation

BERLIN CENTER — Officials will inspect a fallen wind turbine that supplied power to Western Reserve High School.

The turbine fell over around 4 p.m. Sunday. It is one of three installed at the high school in 2009.

Superintendent Charles Swindler said the district does not know how or why the structure fell but that there were no injuries as a result.

He said the other two turbines have been shut down in the meantime.

The turbines were made by a company from Scotland. Swindler said engineers from Chicago are flying out soon to inspect the turbine and could determine the reason it fell by the end of the week.
