About Me

 
Hi, my name is Mr. Win D. Turbine.  I live in Toronto, Ontario.  I would like to tell you about myself.  I was born on December 18, 2002 to a very proud Toronto Hydro Energy services and the WindShare Co-operative.  I cost $1.3 million.  I am the first wind turbine in Toronto and the first wind turbine in an urbine setting in all of North America.  That makes me one of a kind.
 
I am now full grown at 94 metres tall with 29 metre long blades which rotate 21 times per minute.  I weigh 121 000 kilograms.  Each year I produce up to 1000 megawatt hours of electricity, which is enough to power about 250 homes, and displace 272 tonnes of carbon dioxide, that's like growing 6974 tree seedlings for 10 years! 
 
I am very quiet, so I won't disturb you at your home and I am not a hazard for birds, or other flying creatures.  I only kill about 2 birds per year, which is alot less than the amount of birds that house cats kill annualy.
