    Wind Turbine Project Continues

    The Wind Turbine Project located on the southeast tip of the island continues. I drove there yesterday and was pleased to see that one unit is complete, a second well on its way, and the pieces for the others being delivered. It seems the crew is working seven days a week.

    For photos please see this link:

    SanNic,
    there are some turbines close to where I grew up...9 I think and they supply electricity for the local community...not well received at first, but the lower electric bills changed many opinions......hopefully it will help the locals with their electric bills and help to keep some money in their pockets....

    If it's anything like here, the discounts will go to the hotels and the people will still pay full price.
