ST. CLOUD — A windmill project at the St. Cloud V-A Medical Center has been delayed after a crack was discovered on one of the turbine blades. V-A spokesman Barry Venable says they are waiting for replacement blades to be shipped here before the project can be completed.

The 290-foot-tall wind turbine will produce 660-kilowatts of power and will provide up to 16% of the V-A’s electricity. It will save an estimated $98,000 per year in energy costs.

Venable says they expect to get the turbine blades soon and complete the project shortly afterward.

The V-A also recently completed a second renewable energy project…a Ground Source Heat Pump System that helps heat and cool one of the Community Living Center buildings.
