The windmills at Tehachapi. CA have been there for years (Decades?) and they seem to mostly be working, although when we drive by, some are what the Countess and I call"lazy" - not moving. I have no idea how much power they deliver, but the machines are smaller than the newer ones. (Found a site that says 4639 MW of generators are there. How much is delivered I didn't find.)

There are complaints about birds being killed. They seem to be moving so slowly, one would think the birds could easily dodge the blades, but I am told the tips are actually moving rather fast.
