Close to Blackwater Falls State Park and Davis, West Virginia on Backbone Mountain, Florida Power & Light has constructed dozens (44 proposed) of 1.5 megewatt turbines. They are visible along Rt 219, near Thomas-Davis. Even when the wind seemed quiet, the turbines were humming along. A most curious sound they made.
First wind farm in West Virginia and the largest wind energy facility east of the Mississippi.
