Introducing Technician Talk! Check back every month for a new tutorial from one of One Energy’s own wind technicians. Learn a new skill, get to know our gear, watch us complete a task, and meet the crew! Get down to the nitty gritty of building a Wind for Industry project! This week, we’re learning from OE Technician Justin Bruns.
Curious why wind turbines (and other tall structures) flash red at night?
Those red blinking lights are called FAA Obstruction Lights – FAA stands for the Federal Aviation Administration. These lights help illuminate tall structures, such as wind turbines, so that aircraft can easily identify and avoid them.
Justin will explain all about FAA lights – and what happens if an FAA light stops functioning on a wind turbine.
