My morning photo drive a couple weeks ago took me past these wind turbines and I couldn’t resist taking their picture. These are part of the Peetz Table Wind Energy Center located in Logan County, Colorado.
The facility, operated by NextEra Energy Resources, is one of the largest wind power projects in the United States. It has 133 1.5-megawatt turbines that are capable of generating enough electricity to power more than 77,000 homes.
Each turbine is 262 feet tall from the ground to the center of the hub making them rather imposing structures on the relatively flat lands of the Great Plains.
