So I went to do a reading/lecture at Portsmouth Abbey today, and while I thought the campus (on the waterfront) was incredibly beautiful, romantic, etc., etc., I only had eyes for....the wind turbine?
When I inquired about it, apparently this awesome energy generator, with all the elegant lines of a sculpture, was just dedicated a few days ago, and now it was operational, and it's expected that not only will it generate enough electricity for the school, but they'll be able to sell a buncha kilowatts back to the national grid. Cool beans!
