Wind Turbines in Japan

All of Japan’s wind farms are unscathed by the 9.0 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.

Kelly Rigg of the Huffington Post contacted Yoshinori Ueda, leader of the International Committee of the Japan Wind Power Association & Japan Wind Energy Association to find out about how the tiny island nation’s wind farms are holding up through the earthquake and tsunami….

Ueda told her that there has been no wind damage reported by any association members, from either the earthquake or the tsunami. This would mean that all 9,997 MW of the nation’s land-based wind energy is fine.
