Confuse a letter carrier by sending mail to wind turbines
Forensic engineers still haven't determined exactly why T-18 collapsed, but have some ideas. One by one, investigators are inspecting the rest to make sure they're sound. After 8 months, three are running again. Enel North America, the farm's owners hope to have the rest going within a month. <!--break-->
We'll have a more in-depth report about this incident in the coming weeks with our wind series.
Until then, an amusing take away from today's visit: each turbine has its own mailing address. That means if you love wind power, you could send fan mail to T-08 or T-14.
The main reason each is assigned a mailing address is so fire trucks and other emergency responders can navigate their way to a specific turbine in case of an accident.
