Colorado Green Wind Farm
Historic water-pumping windmills used by pioneers are today being replaced with power producing wind farms. The Colorado Green Wind Farm is the 5th largest wind farm in America. The wind turbines here are the largest built in North America: 328 feet high and weigh 92 tons each, the blades rotate 11-20 times per minute. The wind farm encompasses 11,840 acres of leased working ranch and farm land, and produces more than 500 megawatt hours of power per year.
