Last summer I spent my holidays in Gaal ,Austria and during my trips in the mountains in the area, I visited the Tauernwind wind park (1.900 m above sea level). That means 11 wind turbines on a ridgesurrounded by high peaks. In winter the area is also a ski resort. A discussion with my wife arose about the impact of the wind turbines on the landscape (I am also publishing here a picture I took during the trip to show the outline). According to my wife, they had an ugly impact on the landscape. Personally I consider them a landmark of our era, just as windmill were in the past. Aren’t we fascinated by old windmills in the countryside? I think that in the future people will look at our wind generator as we do with old windmills, the Eiffel Tower was not appreciated at the time it was built, but now it’s one of the most widely known tourist attraction in the world. Please make your comments on wind turbine impact on the landscape!
