Default Windmills

Worked up in Van Wert county, Ohio the last couple of days. It is getting to be the land of windmills. Got a couple pics of this "blade" making a turn onto another road. You have to look close to make out the tip. The truck gives it a little perspective.

The put in special radius corners at the turns on those roads so the trucks can get around.

472 Turbines built and currently operating in Huron County. We currently have a wind moratorium preventing any additional projects. Wind energy is very controversial subject right now.
