Who has the biggest wind turbine in North America? We have the biggest wind turbine in North America. Damn straight.

Cleveland Magazine reports that parts for the behemoth arrived this morning at the port. How big is this sucker, which will be installed at the Lincoln Electric Company in Euclid, gonna be?


* From its base to the tip of the blade, it’s 443 feet tall. That’s 23 feet taller than Cedar Point's Top Thrill Dragster.
* Each of the three blades are 165 feet long. Stacked end to end, they’d be taller than Terminal Tower.
* The turbine is about three times taller than the 147-foot wind turbine at the Great Lakes Science Center.
* Our new wind turbine is the largest in North America, according to County Prosecutor William D. Mason, Chairman of the Great Lakes Energy Development Task Force.
