Desert Wind

Yeah, I know it sounds like something out of a Tom Clancy novel, but this was one of my favorite photos from Xinjiang. I first saw the turbines on my way into Wulumqi, yet the air quality was so poor that I was only able to see a vague outline of those nearest to the rail line. I took this on the way back to Nanjing. I”m hoping that when they put more of these babies in, it will be clear all the time.


I believe the above is the Dabancheng windfarm, the largest in China (can any of my Chinese readers confirm this?). 111 turbines generating 57.7 MW of power. Additional units were going up as I sped by in the train.
