Wind Turbines

From Nes (Eysturoy, Faroe Islands), a pleasant trail takes you up to the wind turbines which dominate the hillside above Nes and on to the Toftavatn lake. The birdlife here is very rich.
A “small” wind generator is used to test wind speed for possible power generation. Many times it seems that the wind on the Faroes is simply too strong for these turbines to operate.
