  1. If these are the ones off of X40 they are near me. I would really like to stop and talk tot he folks on the S curve North of Tipton on 38 that have two small turbines. Would love to be completely self sufficient. Cut the cord, what a beautiful sound that will be ;>)

    1. These are the massive ones up by Mechanicsville. We’ve done a lot of research on wind, but went with solar – more efficient, fewer moving parts, less maintenance.
