I have been doing a lot of driving around the Midwest over the last two weeks on my way to interviews, which I may or may not blog about soon. My favorite thing to look at while driving (ooh wait, sorry, SECOND favorite after lakes!) is wind farms! They are so pretty! I know some people complain about them and actually think they are ugly because they seem so strange in the farmland, but I think they’re great.
Did you know that Iowa is #2 for having the most wind power installed in a state? I haven’t seen any wind farms in Iowa; I think maybe they’re in the N/NW part of the state.
I did see wind farms in Illinois on my trip. Illinois is ranked #10 in most wind power.
What a good, CLEAN way to get energy! Way to go, Midwest! It’s nice to know your boring flatness is good for something. 🙂
