United States Largest wind turbine

The United States largest wind turbine happens to be right down the street from my workplace.  Pretty cool.  One blade is longer than 2 of our buildings.  With a height of 443' that is one huge wind tower.  Apparently it fires 2megawatts of power for Lincoln Electric company.  Quite impressive! 

I held it while they tied it to the grid.

It said "this is my good side"

Each blade is over 220' long.

Bit of perspective for you.  443' radius

At Lincoln Electrics site there's more info and a nice slide show about the wind tower.
