Lightning over the Susquehanna River
Recent storms powered their way over southern York County, the Susquehanna River and into Lancaster County. Lightning seemed to be taking aim on the wind turbines.
"The windmills are operated by the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority (LCSWMA) in partnership with PPL Renewable Energy (PPLRE) and Turkey Hill Dairy.
This dedicated 3.2 MW wind project opened in October 2010 at the Frey Farm Landfill in Manor Township. The project includes two 1.6 MW GE wind turbines that will generate about 7.7 million Kwh of electricity, or approximately 25 percent of Turkey Hill's electricity demand." From the Penn State Cooperative Extension about a tour to the mills. For more on that, click here.
