The 2 wind turbines at the desalination plant generated enough electricity to meet 87% of the requirement needed at the plant, during the last 6 months of 2010.

In the previous 6 months they actually met the full requirement and put power into the island´s grid.

The drop in power generated was caused by the wind being less strong at the end of the year.

I took a couple of photos of them the other day because I had read that in the local papers.

They are very impressive constructions. Some people seem to think wind turbines are blot on the landscape, but I think they look OK.

I think they´re OK.

It shows how much electricity can be generated by 2 wind turbines. It´s time for more around the island!
