Lightning strike sets back KWI sound study

TOWN HOUSE- A mid-summers lightening strike on the Kingston Wind Independence (KWI) Turbine is now stalling the much-anticipated taxpayer funded acoustical study on the town’s most controversial turbine.

“We are all aware that the [KWI] Turbine was hit by lightening….and it delays the start of the sound study,” Casna told the Board of Health (BOH) yesterday evening. “[DEP] is utilizing the time to solidify their contractual relationship with the operator of the turbine.”

Casna also told the BOH that the KWI Turbine is expected to be offline until workers from overseas arrive to make repairs.

This month’s lightening strike marks the second time that the KWI Turbine has been offline for an extended period of time due to weather-related causes. Back in February, the KWI Turbine sat idle for weeks after losing power during Winter Storm Nemo.
