    I love driving by and seeing the Point Lookout wind turbine. I see it as a strong, silent & oddly beautiful symbol. I am puzzled why it is all alone, with no others like it nearby. I am also concerned that it has not seemed to be moving at all in the past week, even though the flags were waving in the breeze. What is its status, & where does its power go? Also, does it have a name? (You don’t have to answer that last question.)

      Great thoughts and questions.
      I don’t know why it’s still this week. Hmmm..
      There is a small one nearby the water tower at the marina(but big enough to power a small house), just visible from the road, though we certainly could fit more!!! The power goes to make hydrogen for their vehicle fleet, and the leftover is sent onto the grid for you and we to use. Thanks for sharing!
