Hull High school
The city of Hull, Mass., is considered a leader in community wind, having installed two turbines with plans for offshore turbines in the future. The turbines are owned and operated by the municipal power company.
This is a turbine at the town high school. It's relatively old, and at a rated capacity of 660 kilowatts, it's also relatively small compared to what its manufacturer, Vestas, focuses on now. The wind giant has focused in recent years on very large turbines for utility-scale wind farms.
