Last week I while caught by a train I saw 6 nacelles and 6 rotor hubs going by. Today I was caught by the train again and counted 12 nacelles, no hubs going by. This equipment is made by GE at their local facility. It looks like there is an increase in demand for wind turbines as I've never seen more than one unit before.
It is kinda ironic that these components are made by GE in a building built for Westinghouse Nuclear Components Division.
