Wind Turbine Fire – Livingston County: Iberdrola’s Streator Cayuga Ridge project –

February 22, 2016   ·   3 Comments



Last Friday, another turbine caught fire in Livingston County, Illinois. It was close in location to the turbine fire from last summer (here) and part of Iberdrola Renewable’s Streator Cayuga Ridge project

There were high winds at the time, and local fire departments at the scene could do nothing but watch it burn.

Pontiac and Saunemin Fire Departments were on scene.

    is that smoke green ?

    High winds? How high? Wind turbines reach peak production at 35mph. Over 45 and they are generally set to shut down for their own safety.
