(AP:RUSSELLS POINT, Ohio) The Honda transmission plant in western Ohio will be among the first U.S. automotive manufacturing facilities to get a substantial amount of electricity from wind turbines on the property.

The Bellefontaine Examiner reports ( http://bit.ly/YxdrJu ) that the industrial wind turbines at its Russells Point plant will be up and running sometime this year. Company spokesman Ron Lietzke says it will be the first Honda plant in the world to introduce a wind turbine project of this size. http://bit.ly/YxdrJu The turbines, built by Juhl Wind Inc. of Pipestone, Minn., will sit atop two 260-foot towers. Each will have blades 160 feet long that will drive generators capable of producing about 10,000-megawatt hours annually.

That's about 10 percent of the plant's electrical needs. It also will help reduce its carbon dioxide emissions.
