New Hampshire (TGW) -The wind turbine is flopped over on its side, its blades still.
The turbine isn’t broken; it was lowered from a height of 80 feet to avoid a flock of migratory birds.
The newly installed wind turbine can be lowered at the flick of a switch – the main reason it was given a permit to be constructed on Appledore, an island off the coast of New Hampshire.
The AIRMAP observatory there needed power in the winter; the observatory’s diesel generators were only used in the summer.
