Default Re: Farming the wind

One of my friends is an engineer for HECO and he told me one of the experimental windmills lost one of it's blades and when it separated from the windmill's hub it went flying about a 1/4-mile into the mountains. I'm told one of the surviving blades is the one that is mounted vertically at the Ward Avenue facility. Urban legend? I dunno, just reporting what one HECO Engineer told me.
