WEST AMHERST, N.S. - A wind turbine at an RCMP detachment in northern Nova Scotia is on the fritz again.
Const. Paul Calder of the Cumberland RCMP says the turbine in the West Amherst area stopped working several weeks ago.
Calder says a blown electrical circuit inside the control room seems to be to blame.
Last summer, the turbine was damaged during a severe thunderstorm that fried the electrical components.
The device was repaired last fall.
The 50-kilowatt turbine was erected in May 2005 with the expectation of producing about half the detachment's power needs.
