Grant County Wind Farm project runs into a minor snafu - but should be back "online" within a week

The Grant County Wind Farm project, a $40+ million investment by a number of local families in the Herman-Hoffman area, ran into an "electrical inspection" issue in mid-February. A state inspector found some problems with the electrical work on the towers and ordered them to be shut down until fixed.

The good news is, electricians are doing just that, correcting the problems, as I type this. The towers should be back online within a week or so, according to Wind Farm general manager Ed Persons.

A host of very odd rumors have been flying around Hoffman lately regarding the project. They are all untrue.
