They certainly are - I'd never seen such large wind turbines from the ground until this project near Centralia started.

...back to the fire, have there been any recent developments? The amount of steam this year seems to have decreased over what I remember in previous years, despite it not being particularly dry out. Where are the active fire fronts now?

TIE INTO That’s interesting because I haven't seen any hint of power transmission Lines . I heard a rumor that the power they would be capable of generating was being calculated and simply billed to PP&L who is obligated by law to purchase it . I would love to know the real deal . I think they are hideous eye pollution

That's a good question..... I haven't seen any transmission lines either.... I wonder how the power gets onto the grid.

I agree....they are horrible to look at.....
