PILOT HILL, IL. (ECWd) -
The Pilot Hill Wind Project, located in Kankakee and Iroquois counties in Illinois was the target of wind today.
Yes, wind damaged the wind turbine -
This project is a 175 MW Farm and consists of General Electric (GE) and Vestas turbines and happens to sit on the same electric grid powering Microsoft's Chicago Area Datacenter.
It began producing power in September of 2015 - which makes this project and turbine not even a year old yet. Hope its not an indication of things to come.
