The Electric Division in Bowling Green, Ohio has added a webcam to their website. Sorry, no sexy females on this webcam. Instead you have a few attractive wind turbines 24 hours a day seven days a week. If you really want to seem some action, now is the time to check this web cam out. Fall is one of the windiest seasons, so you will most likely see these turbines live and in motion.
The Bowling Green Wind Farm was constructed in late 2003 with two 1.8 MW wind turbines. In 2004 two more turbines were added and now the total output from this wind farm is 7.2 MW. These wind turbines are said to be one of the largest turbines west of the Rockies. Similar units are in Wyoming and California. In 2005 a solar-powered kiosk was added to the farm. In this kiosk guests can view the turbines’ power output, as well as the specifications of the turbines. You can even view a video of the turbines’ construction.
The webcam is attached to the roof of the kiosk and it moves from turbine to turbine zooming in and out so you can really get up-close and personal with these green machines. For those you are not fortunate enough to live near a wind farm, you can now watch them 24/7.
