Tall turbine installed
Installation of a 160-foot wind turbine in north Washoe Valley has been completed by Peak Construction, Hettrick Electric and The Solar Store, all of Carson City.
The turbine at the home to Tim Stevens is believed to be one of the tallest in the western United States. It has the capacity to produce 20,000 kilowatt hours a year at an 11-mph average wind.
