Charlestown Wind Turbine Back in Action

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority announced Tuesday that the Charlestown wind turbine has returned to service.

According to Ria Convery, a spokesperson for the MWRA, the turbine began spinning again around 3 p.m. Monday.

The recent foundation reinforcement, she said, should be the last of the technical work performed on the site for the near future—though the authority is still slated to plant greenery around the turbine's base.

The turbine had suffered sporadic service in the past.
