This photo shows a wind turbine at the AIM/IPC/SUEZ development known as the East Lake St. Clair Wind Farm. The 99 megawatt wind farm is located in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent on the eastern shoreline of Lake St. Clair in Ontario, Canada. The project will consist of 55 Vestas V-90 1.8 MW turbines. It is estimated that the turbine in the image is about 1/2 mile from the home shown in the forefront.
The Shiloh Wind Power Plant located in the Montezuma Hills of Solano County, California, USA, very near Bird's Landing. The site, located 40 miles northeast of San Francisco, has a nameplate capacity of 505 megawatts (MW). It was constructed in 4 stages (Shiloh I, II, III and IV) between 2005 and 2012.
The Lake Winds Energy Park erected and owned by Consumers Energy Company consists of 56 Vestas V-100 turbines (100 megawatts) each standing 476'. This image shows one turbine sited 1139' from a residence. The project is scheduled to go online before the end of 2012. The house shown in the picture has 13 turbines within a mile of the property and 22 within a mile and one half.
