The Dom Post reports:
The fate of Wellington’s Brooklyn wind turbine swings in the balance.
The 17-year-old turbine, New Zealand’s oldest and first commercially viable one, has not been operating for four months, as some of the machinery needs repair.
Meridian is reviewing whether it should repair, replace or remove the turbine, and plans to ask the community to help decide its fate.
For my 2c I think the turbine is a great icon for Windy Wellington, and it s a great excuse to take visitors up to its location to admire the view. I hope Meridian do keep it going.Tags: Wellington, wind turbines
