Wind Turbines Fully Operational

The Steele Flats Windmill Project is almost complete according to Josh Tran, NextEra Project Manager.

The turbines have all been built and the last one was made operational on Monday, Oct. 28. This final turbine was ahead of schedule thanks to good weather that they had during construction.

There are still many people on site to perform reliability testing on the turbines and working to get as much of the reclaim and civil work completed before winter sets in.

Once reliability is achieved, that is to say NextEra is satisfied that all turbines are fully functional the project will be turned over to the full-time operations team.
