TSC considers turbine proposal

A wind energy company is looking at property in the Tippecanoe School Corporation to put up a wind turbine.

Performance Services is asking the district board for approval of the project near Harrison High School.

Business Development Manager Tony Kuykendall say if it happens, the turbine has the potential to save TSC $6-millions over 25 years.

The school board listened to the proposal, but has no time table for a vote.

Kuykendall says it will likely cost the district between two-point-three and two-point-nine-million-dollars.

There are already two turbines operating in the district, at Cole and Mintonye Elementary Schools.
