Ocean City and offshore wind

Offshore-us-wind-project-oceancity_thumb This is a photosimulation of U.S. Wind's proposed offshore wind facility to be sited 12-miles off the coast of Maryland. U.S. Wind secured the lease rights to two locations off the coast of Ocean City. In total the company is seeking permission to erect up to 187 turbines (750 MW) within an 80,000-acre area.

Turbines sizes at Altamont

Ca_turbinesizecomparison_thumb This composite image shows the relative size of the older turbines at the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area and those replacing them. The smaller turbines are the Windmatic 65 kilowatt machines that stand 84 feet tall on four-leg lattice towers. The blade length is 7 meters. The larger towers are Mitsubishi 1 megawatt turbines installed in the Buena vista section of Altamont with blade lengths of 31 meters.

Turbines on Ubly horizon

Ublyturbineonhorizon_thumb John Deere Renewables' 32-tower wind plant located in the Village of Ubly, Huron County Michigan is the largest wind facility in the State. The 53-megawatt facility went into commercial operation in December 2008. The turbines dominate the landscape, and noise emissions are proving unbearable for some neighboring residents.

Kibby Mountain wind transmission

Kibbywindtransmission_thumb This photo shows the enormity of the transmission lines erected to transport energy from the Kibby Mountain wind facility in Northern Maine. The poles are approximately 100-feet tall, well above the 35-foot tall distribution lines in the foreground. These lines, which run for miles, are very visible contribution to the industrialization of the area. The rights of way are typically 80-100 feet in width creating extensive habitat fragmentation beyond the turbine site.
