ABC Wed R3 : the letter "W"



W is for
Wind Turbine





This windmill farm is located at Bangui, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. The farm has 20 windmills, each has about 24 stories high and produces a total of 25 Megawatts of electricity enough to power 40% of the province. It is along the coastline, thus, being there is breathtakingly amazing. Engineers decided to put up the farm there since the place is not prone to typhoons and the northwesterly winds are strong.





To get there. Take a bus or a plane in Manila to Laoag. Its better to hire a van from Laoag City to go there, this will take about 45 min to reach the farm. Public commuting is possible but you will make almost a kilometer hike from the national road to the farm.

Have a great Wednesday to all...Happy Holidays :)

Those turbines are fascinating. I never realized how large they really are until I saw a documentery about them.
Great choice for the letter W.

I had no idea how tall these were until we passed some on a trip. A very good "W" choice...and something we need more of...
