I traveled with my brother's family to the Texas State Swim meet in Corpus Christi. On our way home, their oldest son wanted a closer look at the Wind Farm near Taft, Texas. We were able to pull over and get a fairly close look at one. They are HUGE! There are nearly 196 wind turbines on the "farm".
All turbines are approximately 262 feet high and have 2 blades. They have a maximum rotation speed of 22 rotations per minute. The majority of the electricity is sold to the Lower Colorado River Authority and CPS Energy which is owned by the City of San Antonio.
They were interesting, but I am glad that I don't have them lining the horizon near me.
Y'all come back,
