T is for...


TURBINE

Once again, I have to refer to the Northeastern coast of Aruba.  That is where the wind TURBINES can be seen along a small ridge located on the wind whipped coastline.  With the constant wind, they are never motionless...never.  

Here at the Wind Farm Vader Piet, the ten turbines are only the beginning of the government's plan for a total renewable energy program by 2020!



Oh, one more thing.  The wild goats don't mind co-existing at all!

I have never been to Aruba, but I have seen wind turbines that went for as far as I could see in Claifornia. The coolest wind turbine I have seen, however, was just west of Amarillo, Texas. For instead of having blades--it looked more like a washing machine agitator!

That is totally cool that they are utilizing that wind for their tiny island! Yay for them!!

I don't know why, but I really love those turbines. I've seen them on television and I'm just mesmerized by them.

i like wind energy - but i know it gets a lot of concern from birders concerned with migratory flocks.

Good for them for taking advantage of the wind energy. And wild goats? How cool!

A lot of people hate them, and I haven't seen them close up, but from a distance they look so elegant to my mind. Couple that with renewable energy and it's all good.

Renewable energy is a great idea.
