Gianormous wind generators

While home visiting family the past few days, Mom and Dad took me on a tour of the construction in progress of 27 gianormous wind generators near my family's farms. According to my Dad, they are the largest wind towers available for construction in the USA, around 290' tall with three 80' fan blades per generator. They had to grade down the hills and widen the corners to accommodate the length of the trucks that delivered the components of the giant wind towers. So far, there are five towers complete and the remaining 22 are going up fast. The towers you see in this pic could be seen more than ten miles away. It was just so wild.
