Construction of the operations and maintenance building for Third Planet Windpower, LLC, in west Petersburg is a final phase of the company’s 40.5 megawatt wind farm project in Petersburg. The building is now enclosed and a fence has been installed to secure the area. The contractor, B-D Construction of Columbus, is working on the interior.
All work has been completed on the TPW substation, and a scheduled outage of the main transmission line is planned for late September to prepare for connecting the TPW substation to the NPPD substation east of Petersburg. This outage will not affect local electric service.
