Wind Turbines Are Best Left Running – ( Solar Thermal Magazine)
You have to really love wind energy as a base jumper, to want to walk this turbine blade at 300 feet in the air before jumping off and floating to earth. That is what is happening in this video. A willing partner in the event, shutdowns the 2 megawatt wind turbine ( it is much easier to walk on this way) so that one blade is horizontal and ready to be walked on.
I hope that the 400 homes that suddenly lost power so they could shoot this video didn’t have dinner in the oven or were not watching the big game with friends and family, but really it is pretty cool to watch.
Me, I am not afraid of heights but for sure I am afraid of falling of a 300 foot turbine blade.
