I am totally fascinated with the power of wind. I have wondered what goes into the building of windmill.
While riding up in the snow covered high country this weekend I came across a sight that I just couldn't understand. PIPE! VERY LARGE PIPE.
Come to understand that these pipe are what hold the windmills in place.
So why don't we ever see these pipes around windmill? It's because they are sunk in the ground, that must be some massive whole. The are the support base for those tall fixtures. They have to put at least a 1/3 of the height of the windmill in the ground for anchorage so that the windmills don't blow over with the straight of the wind. CRAZY.
