Swedish Turbine

So, in Sweden they have a mix of energy production with the majority being hydro, kind helps when you have all that water handy 🙂 they also have a few nuclear plants one of which is pretty large, the other source, which i think is about 5% of their power, is wind turbine, in southern Sweden around Lund where we stayed the countryside was completely dotted with these turbines. I would have to recommend that certain Australian politicians (and ex pollies) not to visit here since they are so significantly offended by the sight of wind farms 😉

I quite liked the sight, these tall slow turning towers to me simply represent a low impact renewable energy source, it was really cool that all you could see is a tower and a slow turning prop, all the electrical cables are buried under ground. The noise is well.. almost non existent.

I do like my lone trees in a paddock or on a beach, so it was cool to spot this lone tower on a late night drive on the first night in Sweden. The sun had just gone down (11pm ish) and the pascals had come out.
