Wind Farm on US Highway 52


Wind Farm on US Highway 52, originally uploaded by Andy Wendt.

A newly constucted wind farm in Benton County, Indiana. Photo taken on Thanksgiving weekend 2008 while traveling north on US 52 toward Fowler.

I did hear some talk at the dinner table (sounds a bit hard to believe though) that said the electricity produced from the farm will be going to California as its cost will be much higher than the local residents of north west Indiana are currently paying. I don't know about that but I know these things are big!

Wow, I just found out there is a Wind Turbine Manufacturing Plant right here in Bulter County, Ohio where I live. Small world.

I didn't realize there were wind farms east of the Mississippi River.

Looks like the idea is migrating east.

Our little county is now the largest wind constuction project in the world now... when finished there will be almost 1000 wind generators in our small county... not bad for a county of 9200... here is a link to more pictures... clink on the wind mills page...
