WAYNE - The owner of Wayne Auto Spa is installing a wind turbine on his property after winning a court victory against town leaders.
Rob Burke wanted to install the turbine on his property in 2007, but the town opposed it.
Burke finally won that fight, allowing him to install the energy-producing devices.

"Its going to be 50 feet tall," he says. "It will produce about 15 to 20 percent as much electricity as my solar panels produce. It will not be enough to run the whole facility, but it will be enough to avoid the consumption of a lot of fossil-based fuels."
Burke's renewable energy initiatives go beyond the turbines themselves. He also recycles water at the carwash.
