The Salem News reports that Ipswich has started construction on a second turbine, which will be near the first turbine on Town Farm Road.
The town’s second wind turbine is slated to be up and running by Thanksgiving.
The new turbine’s foundation is finished, and its blades and other components are expected to arrive in mid-October, said Tim Henry, director of Ipswich’s utilities department. It’s expected to be operational and generating power by the end of November. . . .
