This wind turbine makes the most awful screeching noises. You can not sleep if you stay at the Broyhill Inn. It has small blades and it is not going to make much energy. It is just a deception, or tease on ASU's part. ASU wants to destroy the mountain ridges by supporing the installation of 400 foot wind turbines on our ridges. ASU supports bird kills, and blowing up the mountains to insert these huge wind turbines. We should not support Appalachian State University. They already break the ridge law on Beech Mountain. I would not trust them.
