Wind Views | Catching Wind

Today’s edition of Wind Views features five of the turbines at the North Findlay Wind Campus, on a beautiful sunny day! 🌞

In this photo, each turbine’s rotor (which is made up of the hub plus the three blades) is facing the same direction: southeast. This is because that’s the direction the wind was blowing from when this picture was taken! Our wind turbines rotate, or yaw to face the wind, helping them better optimize this natural source of energy. 💨

There’s a number of reasons why you may see a group of turbines facing different directions. Tune in to next week’s Wind View to learn more!
