TSC considers turbine proposal

Apr 12, 2012

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.

Wind Farm Project at Purdue Hits Wall

Apr 2, 2012

The wind farm set to go up on Purdue’s campus is stalled.

The company, Performance Services, is halting the project while it looks for new sources of revenue.

Mitchell Martin is an assistant dean in Purdue’s College of Agriculture.

He says the timeline is unknown, but the project has not and will not affect the work the university is doing on the site.

The project was expected to cost around $200-million.

The plan is to put up about 60 wind turbines, 17 of which would be located on Purdue’s research land.
