Roof Ice Does a Number to the Small Wind Turbine Tower

26 Feb , 2015  

Roof-ice-bends-tower-600 Never know what to find when you arrive to an off grid property. Drove up with the family on Friday night and saw the small wind turbine tower was at a serious list to one side. Didn’t see damage from a tree branch or a broken guy wire. The small tower is located on top of the bunk house. What had happened was the ice on the roof was melting and slowly creeping off. A portion of the roof snow (like an iceberg) had grabbed a hold of a guy wire and was tugging it in one direction. I managed to knock off a large chunk of snow and ice without falling off the ladder or breaking window below. The next day, I went back and straightened out the tower and added another guy wire. It’s good for now, but changes will be made for next years winter.
