Turbine blades with ice buildup

This 300-foot industrial-scale turbine (600 kw) in Newburyport, MA is sited just 319-feet from the public pedestrian rail trail, 350-feet from heavily-traveled U.S. Route 1, and 800-feet from the nearest residence. During the public hearing process, the developer insisted "[the turbine] was a long way from the rail trail and if the ice did shed it would be directly below."
