This 292-foot wind turbine recently erected in Newburyport, MA is located just 319-feet from the public pedestrian rail trail, 350-feet from heavily-traveled U.S. Route 1 (in the foreground), and 800-feet from the nearest residence.

Balloons were flown in Newburyport, MA to demonstrate the height of the proposed industrial wind turbine. Two balloons on a single tether were flown to show the height of the tower and the overall height including the structure including the blades. The balloons are white and difficult to distinguish against the white clouds. The height of the proposed turbine, 300-feet, far exceeds the height of all other objects in the area.
