Heading up the mountain!
Power Transfer Station
A turbine emerges.
More turbines emerge!
Things I didn't know: while the hub rotates on the turbine to catch the wind, the blades also rotate, like synchronized sails.
Inside a turbine, looking up. The access elevator is to the right, above that black bucket.
Standing in the shadow of giants.
Looking straight up!
Perfect day. :)
Shadow of a blade as it turns.
The noise heard in this video is the machinery in the turbine as it gets up to speed. Once it reaches a certain speed, the engine noises stop and the purr of the blades is all you hear.
The fleet, again.
Behold, Vermont's energy future!
Time for another close-up!
First Wind folks talking shop with VPIRG.
The turbines sit literally amongst the trees.
Proof of how rural this region is. I love it!
