Pettisville will dedicate their new 750 kW Aeronautica wind turbine on Wednesday at 10:30 AM. The brief 20 minute ceremony will be held (weather permitting) on the parking lot to the west of the turbine.
The ceremony will include comments from several individuals, presentation of a five year commitment by Sauder Woodworking of Archbold to purchase Renewable Energy Credits from the school, and the ceremonial ribbon cutting, featuring representatives of each of the schools grades. The public is invited.
The turbine has been in operation since February 22-the date an original dedication had been scheduled but was cancelled due to weather. It has produced nearly 300,000 kWh of electricity. The turbine is projected to provide all of the electricity needed for the 550 student PK-12 district.
In case of inclement weather the program will be held in the gymnasium.
