"Weatherford is home to the second-largest (as of 2008) wind farm in Oklahoma, the Weatherford Wind Energy Center, with 98 GE 1.5 MW Wind Turbines, for a total nameplate capacity of 147 MW."
We stopped here on our 2021 road trip as we were coming from Amarillo to OKC. Definitely worth the stop just so you can see the sheer size of these things! My kids were pretty impressed. It's in a safe area (right next to police station/city offices) and you can get right up to the turbine blade. According to the site, the blade is 122' long; I took a picture of my daughter at the small end and you can just barely see my son way in the background at the other end. They really are huge! Definitely worth a stop if you're not from a part of the country where wind farms are a thing (like us!).
Was interesting if you never seen a wind turbine on the ground. Great learning information also, but not exactly what I expected. Also, some of the these board were hard to read from bleaching. Was more at Awwed seeing the hundreds of wind turbine on the interstate.
We visited here in the summer of 2017. It was awesome to see one up close! We were blown away by the size! There is also a really great display case that teaches you all about wind power.
My children Kept asking about the wind mills, therefore I made a stop here to show them how big they really were and educate them what they are for. Rather then them hearing from my mouth :). Also at this stop is a memorial for vets. Happy Trails.
Pretty cool to see one up close. Gives you a nice perspective of the size of these things.
Great to see up close, after this we passed miles of windfarms and it really put the size of them in perspective. Also has a picnic table and we had lunch while the kids climbed all over the blade. There is war memorial here as well.
It was really cool to see one of the blades close up. It really gives you an appreciation for how big the whole turbine must be.
Traveling Route 66? You've gotta see this! Pretty neat to see up close.
Interesting to be that close up to a blade, not much else to see but has a picnic table right next to it which is a nice little spot for lunch
The blade is huge. Quite interesting to see. Who knew they were made of fibreglass
