Spinning and Spinning


Part of a tower

Wind turbines are huge. If a manager has an employee who’s developing an overinflated sense of self importance, they need only to take them to a wind farm to remind them of how small they are. 

Wind farms are one of my favorite sights out here on the road. Equally impressive is seeing the pieces of the turbines being hauled from factory to farm.

Tiny bit of a windfarm

The biggest windfarm I’ve seen was in north west Texas. Nolan County has more than 1000 turbines, according to sweetwatertexas.org. Wyoming, New Mexico, Colorado, Indiana, California and Nebraska are a few other states boasting windfarms and many of them are producing a serious amount of electricity. Fortune.com says wind energy is closing the gap on fossil fuels in cost effectiveness. Solar is still behind wind energy. Of course, both solar and wind energy vary in their cost depending on where you are. The way I figure it, the more options we have, the better. 

That’s all for now, friends. Until next time, drive safely 🙂
