Alabama Power's John Kelley, Director of Forecasting & Resource Planning, presented about wind as a renewable energy source. Ok, did you know that just one wind turbine stands over 300 ft tall with blades 180 ft in length. That means any one of these turbines would dwarf any building downtown. Oklahoma has a wind farm with 140 of the turbines. Also, the turbines spin at over 200 mph with wind speeds of just 15-20 mph.

A subject that is definitely relevant and John was a masterful presenter that had the club laughing the whole time. Thank you John for informing us about a subject that will only become more important as time goes.
