Rising to the height of a 40-floor building, it’s almost impossible to grasp just how big these wind turbines are until you’re driving up close and passing them on the road in Pedernales. The largest wind farm in the Caribbean and Central America, Parque Eólico Los Cocos is also the first in the country, connected to the national grid. With a capacity of 77 megawatts, its 40 wind turbines generate enough power to keep one million light bulbs lit. The informative one-hour tour of this wind farm provides insight into its operation.
