PAXTON, Ill. (WCIA) — A wind turbine located just south of Route 9 near Paxton is visibly leaning.
The turbine is owned by RWE Renewables Americas LLC, and is part of the Pioneer Trail Wind Farm. Crews were there to guard the entrance to the access road. The company said they will be inspecting the turbine to see what they need to do.
They added that they have not had anything happen like this with any of their other turbines.
The turbine is back in operation but it is still leaning.
Crews will be out at the location for the next three days to figure out the cause. They advise people to stay away from the turbine until it is fixed.
