  • Each turbine, made by General Electric, can produce up to 1.5 megawatts of electricity, enough to power about 400 homes a year.

Bill Madison, who owns a vineyard just east of the mesa, said he’s opposed to large turbines disturbing views. He said some neighbors are worried about a low level of noise the turbines might produce."
