Berlin Moves to Build Wind Turbines in Fall
BERLIN, Md. - The town of Berlin is finally moving forward with a new wind turbine.
WMDT reports that the turbine will be built behind Cropper's Towing Company off of Old Ocean City Boulevard.
It is designed to produce 50 Kilowatts of electricity, but officials say they won't know how much it will save the town, money-wise, until it's been in place for at least a year.
The town of Berlin is investing $4,500 in the more than $100,000 project, with the company designing the wind turbine absorbing the majority of the cost.
Construction is expected to start in October, and weather permitting, will wrap up in November.
