1 of Epic's 6 wind turbines spins power | Business
Software co. says 6 turbines to be active by summer
One of Epic's six planned turbines is up and running as of last week. The single operational tower at the mini wind turbine site northwest of Madison is generating 800 KW of energy, Barb Hernandez with Epic said.
A representative for the Verona medical software giant said the whole project won't be complete and operating until this summer, when a line connecting the six turbines is in place.
First news of the project came in mid-October, when Epic confirmed information that it planned to build a wind farm with six 262-foot turbines to help supplement the company’s energy needs. Epic’s director of facilities and engineering, Bruce Richards, told Channel3000.com in October that the company hoped to provide 85 percent of its energy with wind power by 2014.
The company’s six new wind turbines are off Kick-A-Boo Road in the Town of Springfield near Middleton.
