Maple Ridge Wind Farm

Maple Ridge Wind Farm is the largest farm in New York state, specifically in Lewis County. Maple Ridge has 195 Vestas turbines cranking out 231 megawatts, enough to power around 68,000 homes each year. The farm came online in January 2006.

This is another great wind turbine at sunset shot. I like how the sun is just barely peeking over the dark horizon.
