🇳🇴 ARCTIC WIND TURBINES.
🌐 70°55′22″N, 27°14′56″E, late Oct 2018: on my peninsula roundtrip hike, I also passed through this tall “forest” on the most windy mountain top: Kjøllefjord Vindpark, a wind turbine power plant, built on a mountain rock surface in 2006. 17 generators w hub height 100 m/330 ft and rotor dia 110 m/360 ft, producing 150 GW per year - this can power 6,200 homes, year round. Pretty good, and clean power!
BTW, 99% of 🇳🇴Norway’s power production comes from renewable energy (hydro-electric dams 149.3 TWh/year, wind 2.8 TWh, bio-diesel 0.2 TWh, ...).
♻️ Yes, it is kind of easy to say, when 44% of your country is mountains and weather is always harsh.
But, sadly, wind turbine blades kill many White-tailed eagles and other birdlife in Norway, every year (same conundrum in any country, I’m sure). Wind turbine blades are far apart, often white (similar to cloudy background sky), and can be very hard to spot when they approach quickly from behind/side - with a ramming speed of up to 220 km/h at blade tip. 🦅
