Modern, efficient wind turbines are 200-300 feet tall and consist of a large rotating propeller that turns slowly in the wind. These wind turbines typically can each produce between 1.5-3 megawatts of electricity at a cost comparable to electricity generated by new natural gas or coal fueled facilities. Wind turbines produce no emissions of carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, or other pollutants. There is very little noise generated and, with the BQ Energy approach to development, the visual impacts of wind energy are acceptable.
