Wind farm on schedule

Turbine parts are continually arriving at the Peyton Creek Wind Farm near Shepard Motte Road.
Above, two drivers await word on the line of specially rigged trailers carrying the turbine blades that are 202 feet long, eight feet wide and weigh an estimated 38,000 pounds.
There are still projected to be 48 turbine locations, like the one at right, with hub heights of approximately 287 feet, according to Nathan Yates, Wind Development Manager with Peyton Creek Wind Farm owner E.ON.
The project is on schedule to be fully operational by end of December, Yates said.
