Windfarm turbine
Windfarm turbine
One of the 103 Mitsubishi turbines that make up the Penrhyddlan and Llidiarytwaun Wind Farm (known locally as 'the P & L'). The tower is 45m high and each turbine generates 300kw, giving the wind farm the potential to generate up to 30.9 megawatts of electricity, or enough to power 19,000 homes. The site stands at 500m elevation and is prone to bad weather, as the photo testifies.
