RESL Wind Turbine

RESL Wind Turbine

Originally uploaded by wdrwilson.

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!!!

    About time this place had some non-destructive methods of generating power!

    Perfect photos, now the largest wind turbine in the world is 6Mw in Germany. The power could support 1700 homes.
