Those windmills are all over our area here in Western New York. You really don't realize just how big those suckers are until you are standing right under one of those babys! The fins are 70 feet long! http://www.everydayc...trial_wind.html


I seen a truck hauling those fins down the highway it was HUGE

Who put that barn there..... Every one knows that on a wind farm when its harvest time, you don't have time goof off or you'll loose the crop.

The blades on the 4 turbines we have here are 120 feet,  I think the specs were 402  feet from the ground to the top of the blade straight up !

I think, germany is the number one in using windpower. I a "windpark" near Kassel, 10 miles away, they've posted nine mills with a height of 290 meters (~ 990 feet). And the parks will be expanded, everywhere in D  - from the offshore parks in the North Sea to Bavaria.
