The wind farm at Noupoort is still under construction. There are 35 wind turbines to be installed and connected to the grid. The height of a wind turbine is 152 meters. These 35 wind turbines will supply clean, safe and effective energy to 69,000 homes.
At present there are ten turbines erected and I managed a couple of photos showing all ten!
As we drove down to Cape Town, at Caledon, I photographed another wind farm
Denmark, Portugal, Spain and other European countries are leaders in harnessing wind to generate energy. Wind energy is one of the best sources of renewable energy. Wind energy produces no air-or water pollution.
The US and Canada are up there with the leading countries producing energy by using wind turbines. Turbines can be as tall as 200m with blades 60m long. The tallest wind turbine is in Hawai at 20 storeys tall and blades the length of a football field.

HAPPY TUESDAY TO YOU ALL!
