One up, one to go

A crane is pictured Monday in the background at the site where crew last week constructed one of Willmar Municipal Utilities' two wind turbines. Construction is underway on the second wind turbine. MUC's staff electrical engineer Wes Hompe said the blades will be erected by the end of the week. When complete, the twin 265-foot turbines will generate 3 percent of the city's power. The site is just north of Willmar Senior High School. Tribune photo by Gary Miller
