When driving into the beautiful Coachella Valley, California, one of the most striking sights you will see is the vast array of wind turbines that sprout from the desert floor, as shown in this overview offered by Customaps.
The words "wind turbine" have evolved into what the locals call now windmills. Almost all of the currently installed wind electric generation capacity is in California. Increasingly popular as alternative sources of energy, wind turbine generators are a type of windmill that produce electricity by harnessing the wind. They are much less harmful to the environment than burning fossil fuels, but they do require average wind speeds of at least 13 mph (21 km/h). The largest of these stands 150 feet (45 m) tall with blades that measure half the length of a football field. A wind turbine's cost can range upwards of $300,000 and can produce 300 kilowatts - the amount of electricity an average household would use in a month.
