AR Wind Farm - Turbine and Plane
AR Wind Farm - Turbine and Plane
Description: Here a jet leaves a trail behind one of the huge wind turbines. On top are an antenna for remote control and a hotwire anemometer to provide wind readings. Ron, Becky and I toured the Alleghany Ridge Wind Farm this Sunday. It consists of 30 newly-installed wind turbines - and 30 more to come - on top of the Alleghany Mountain ridges southwest of Altoona, PA, owned and operated by GAMESA Energy.
