All 57,636 U.S. wind turbines on one map – Love it!

A good day for map nerds:   The U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Department of Energy have published an on-line map of a database on every single wind turbine in the United States.   You can zoom in to see individual units in exacting detail — project name, capacity, manufacturer and the year it came online. The interactive site also shows rotor diameter and hub height, turbine models and their positions by latitude and longitude.   Over 89 gigawatts of installed capacity, and counting.   Kudos to Jim Efstathiou, Jr. for writing about it in Bloomberg.
