Wind Turbines Winding Up

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA. --Energy Northwest expects the wind turbines in the Tri-Cities to resume making power later this evening.

Even with the high winds and the potential to make a lot of electricty,  the turbines in Nine Canyon have been idle since Wednesday.

The Bonneville Power Administration had sent word to Energy Northwest last month that the wind farm would have to be shut down  for three days so it could work on transmission systems.
