The Bayonne wind turbine is finally spinning again after a  broken generator part rendered it motionless in June of last year. The 260-foot turbine has been still ever since, costing Bayonne an estimated $25,000 in energy savings every month.

Originally scheduled to be repaired in November, repairs were delayed several times awaiting replacement parts to turbine’s generator.

The part that broke was supposed to last 20 years, but only lasted three. It has been sent to Europe for testing to determine how it broke.
