Wind turbine near Polperro, Cornwall
Wind turbine near Polperro, Cornwall
Taken on an appropriately windy day.

The turbine uses a wind direction sensor and then rotates automatically about its vertical axis to capture the wind most effectively to maximise power output. It made several directional adjustments in gusty conditions during the ten minutes that I was there.
