Wind turbines on far west side

What are the things that puzzle, enrage, delight and tickle you as you go about your life in Madison?

The two center turbines were turning last night as I was coming home. I'm so used to seeing these standing still as sentinels that I was momentarily confused by the motion. It's possible they've finally started hooking these up to the grid.

Five of the six were turning yesterday. This morning, all six were in motion. Is this a test run or are they now actively producing electricity?

I'd say that all six have been operational since last summer. I've seen all six in motion on multiple occasions throughout the fall and winter months, though it's more often the case where four or five are going and one is motionless.

Thanks. Haven't driven down 12 in that direction for a bit. I assume that means they are on line. Do you know if EPIC feeds the juice only to their property or are they on the grid? I know that used to be a point of contention.
