Newburyport turbine balloon test

Newburyportturbinecemetery-cell_tower_thumb 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.
