Drone footage captures shocking wind turbine damage after propeller explodes

Wind turbines have become commonplace in North America, as well as other parts of the world, in our quest for a clean energy alternative to fossil fuels and nuclear power. We have yet to find the perfect solution that addresses the concerns of all. It is a difficult balance between environmental impact, financial costs, and the impacts on our health.

This wind farm is a rare example of what can happen when the physical stresses placed on one of these giant propeller blades result in a explosion and fragmentation of the massive blades.
