2/21/10 Turbines leaking oil near Towns of Johnsburg, AND Empire in Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin

During a recent visit to the We Energies Blue Sky/Green Field wind project near the Town of Johnsburg in Fond du Lac County, at least seven turbines appeared to be leaking oil.

Residents pointed out the leaks and stated the problem seems to be increasing throughout the project.

Our camera wasn't capable of long range shots of turbines in the field, but oil leaking from a turbine sited nearer to the road is visible in this video.

The photos in the second video were sent to us by residents of the Cedar Ridge wind project near the Town of Empire in Fond du Lac County.
