Wind turbine on Artfield Fell
Wind turbine on Artfield Fell
1.3MW turbine standing 43 metres tall to the hub, with a rotor diameter of 62 metres, giving an overall height of 74 metres. Total capacity of windfarm at peak generation = 19.5MW. I admit to having mixed feelings about wind turbines. While they are undoubtedly elegant, their size is grossly out of scale with the rest of the landscape.
