Wind turbine at landmark New Philadelphia hotel to begin operating this month

A newly installed wind turbine at New Philadelphia’s Schoenbrunn Inn and Conference Center is expected to begin generating electricity this month, according to a recent article in The Times-Reporter. Sam Courtney, installation supervisor for Wind Turbines of Ohio, LLC, said the wind turbine is “expected to generate an average of 250 to 300 kilowatts of electricity daily,” the article reports. Courtney said turbines like the one installed at Schoenbrunn Inn “cost about $600,000 after tax credits and other incentives,” with an estimated payback period of “nine to 11 years.” The equipment is projected to have 20 to 25 years of useful life.
