In fact, the turbines are strong enough to power 10,000 to 12,000 homes. The steel towers are 262 feet, while the blades of fiberglass are each 134.5 feet long. Total weight, including the foundation of each turbine, reaches 3,000,000 pounds.
Adams Wind Generations, LLC, and Danielson Wind Farms, LLC, were formed by local farmers, neighbors and friends who understand the positive impact a collection of windmills can have on a community. These projects help support the local economy through lease payments to landowners, tax payments benefiting the county and townships, and new full-time jobs to provide ongoing maintenance.
Although both wind farms produce enough clean, renewable energy to provide every house in Meeker County with electricity, the majority of the land continues to be used for farming.
