Wind Mills

the Kiwi's installed these windmills as their contribution to our two bases, Scott Base and McMurdo Station. Each of these three produce upto 300 kw of energy. Its invaluable because each of our diesel generators generate 900 kw. The station is just a little too power hungry to run on one generator, so with the wind mills supplementing the diesels, we don't have to fire up a second generator all the time.

These remind me of the scene from a James Bond movie.
