Windmill Tours

Aloha Everyone,

Many of us have seen giant wind turbines all in a straight line in wide open spaces. During sunset or sunrise hours, they appear like some alien creatures from a galaxy far far away. They certainly lack romance which Miguel Cervantes described in his classic story about Don Quijote de la Mancha.  

There were about 15 couples or 30 visitors including Vita, Len, JJ and me. The group was invited to watch an orientation film inside the small building. Randy Buckmaster was a perfect guide: knowledgeable, enthusiastic and ready to answer questions. The two hours tour included an overview of the windmill industry, history, job opportunities and the future of this fast growing source of renewable energy.

Fascinating and useful information especially for younger people who are looking for an exciting job. I took mental notes to share with our nephews and nieces.

For more info, please go to AWEA, US wind industry’s annual market reports.

Aloha -- Cathi
