  1. Are they the ones off Leach Hwy near Cloverdale?  Saw them briefly the other day and thought them interesting.

  2. I can see them from Temperly Close in Welshpool... They would be towards Leach Hwy.

  3. wind turbine, airflow leads to lift going in a horizontal angle, centripital force brings the next "wing" into airflow. the oblique curve maximizes this continuing motion at low wind speeds but reduces output at high speed.

  4. Unfortunately it doesnt have much of a swept area which limits its maximum power. Sadly the 3 blade horizontal axis turbine is still king 8-(.

  5. I had an errand down that way today so I detoured a little and took a look. There are 3 of them alongside the new office block at the Toyota vehicle distribution centre on Miles road in Kewdale. The close-up on Google Maps is too old to show them. The blades are bright white, I could see them from the intersection of Abernathy Rd & Leach Hwy.
