Most people jump in their cars and drive to work fighting traffic or wait for the train or bus. Work in the store, factory or office is very different than the career that some have chosen in the wind energy industry. This career is not for everyone and certainly a certain level of physical and mental fitness is a requirement. How ever like all jobs there must be days that are amazing and some that you would rather not repeat.
