Video: View From A Wind Turbine

In the town of Swaffham (love that name), England, they have one the few wind turbines in the world that features an observation tower. It’s open to the public, so Newconsumer.TV went inside to climb the turbine, and take a look.

Last week, the EU committed Europe to producing 20 per cent of its energy from renewables by 2020. For the U.K., that mean it will be investing in a lot of wind power.

    I visited this turbine in August 2007 and it is virtually silent (you can only hear the blades swooshing when you are right under it and if the wind is strong). Nice town Swaffham. Way to go Swaffham!

    What a great idea. They should make more wind turbines with observation towers. It will help to generate profits and it could make electricity a bit cheaper.
