Wild Horse Wind Farm continued

Here is a couple of other images from the Wild Horse wind farm from my evolving series on clean energy solutions printed with alternative process.

The wind farm has about 150 turbines that can generate about 275-megawatts of power which is enough to power about 80,000 homes. Each tower stands 221 feet tall and weigh 104 tons. The total height with blades is over 330 feet tall and tops the scales at around 223 tons.  The turbine blades are 129 feet long and the diameter of a completed turbine exceeds the wingspan of a Boeing 747. The turbines are able to operate in winds a low as 9 mph and as high as 56 mph.

The farm is located in central Washington along the Colombia River about 15 miles east of Ellensburg on top of the Wiskey Dick Mountain.
