When Things Go Wrong With Wind Turbines [GALLERY]
The State of Wyoming has 1,100 MW of installed wind generation as of 2010 and its existing wind capacity ranks twelfth in the U.S. Yet the state ranks even higher, seventh, in potential wind capacity. The state has the potential to produce a whopping 227,664 MW of wind energy, enough power for 68.3 million homes. I am guessing that means a few more wind turbines will be going up in the very near future across the Cowboy State. Now not often does something go wrong but when it does at this scale and size it goes wrong impressively. A friend of ours sent us these pictures in an email titled "If you see one of these smoking ....RUN!" Take a look.
