This windfarm near our campground is certainly a feature of the landscape. Set in miles and miles of corn, wheat and soybean fields, these giants take advantage of the almost constant wind on the prairie here. I have always wanted to see and hear one of these giant structures up close, so today I did! It was pretty cool to get up close but as I was standing underneath and filming, I got kind of anxious. Those blades are BIG!
At a cost of $400 million, one of the largest wind farms in North Dakota, Ashtabula Wind Farm covers more than 77 square miles and the 250 turbines generate enough power for 99,000 homes.
