RESL Wind Turbine


RESL Wind Turbine

Last week we noticed this huge new wind turbine being setup on the edge of route 333 in Halifax. I couldn’t get over the size of it and I thought it would be a perfect candidate for some aerial shots.

So today I managed to get out to take some photos. The winds were good but not quite enough to get the rig higher than about 100-150 ft off the ground. (time to make a Maxi-Dopero). This is the only really decent shot I was able to get in my two attempts to photograph the turbine. I like this shot as the clouds are particularly interesting and you still get a sense of scale (not enough IMHO).

RESL has 3 more turbines lined up and ready to go in different parts of Nova Scotia. This particular turbine will generate enough energy to power 250 homes. Gotta love the wind!!!
