Lynn wind turbine set for use
A new 254-foot high wind turbine is predicted to save the city of Lynn around $60,000 a year in electrical costs.
The 660-kilowatt turbine has been tested and should be operational by the end of the month.
The turbine has received almost no opposition. It is away from houses in an industrial area about 100 yards away from the Lynnway.

The wind turbine’s energy will help treat raw sewage from Lynn, Swampscott, Saugus, and Nahant.
Although the property only had room for one turbine, officials hope region will invest in renewable energy.
