Not a bad shot - definitely real world - UNTIL 2015! - all going, going, and nearly gone - to be replaced by one new fourth (or current) generation turbines by NextEra Energy Resources) by the end of the year (only in this particular area south of I-580, near Flynn Road North east to near Midway, and only north of Patterson Pass Road). More 'repowering' between now and 2018 throughout the Alameda County portion of the Altamont Pass Wind Resource Area. About 10 to 15 of these old generation turbines are replaced for every new one! Much safer for birds!

MOST IMPORTANT, HOWEVER the simulated models you see here are not realistic for their size and density - see the photos of their actual size. The simulated models are 3rd or 4th generation turbines, but will be much farther apart
