Wind farm cache GCBB26

3 in a row

But who found it?

Easy Peasy find on our way to Cape Town last weekend. But I realised once again why I should stick to navigating instead of driving. Henk read the clue as gate post in stead of fence post. And I almost drove by 2 turnoffs cause the navigator was running on Africa time. But we still found it. Well, Henk hang back and I got to find it!

It was a bit breezy while we were there, and sadly as we’ve noticed on all our trips past this wind farm, the turbines were yet again stationary. Have they ever turned though? I know this is technically a prototype for SA, but what a waste if it’s no put to use.

There were rumours of another wind farm by Lutzville/Koekenaap – it’s ALWAYS windy there, there’s enough open space. Perfect. But that’s where it has stayed… rumours. Let’s hope Eskom smells the smog and get creative with alternative energy sources.
