Windmills Old and New

Old Windmill and New Wind Turbine

This is a photo of an old windmill and water tank located on a farm on Route 136 south of Interstate 155 with a new wind turbine in the background. I thought is was interesting to see the old windmill used to provide energy on farms to pump water, etc. against the new wind turbines which provide energy to many households. My wife and I were saw this while driving to a craft sale in Delavan. A co-worker who lives in Delavan told me about the windmill and wind turbine located close to one another so as we approached Delavan I was looking for it and stopped to take this photo when I saw them.

Nice deceptive picture as part of the propaganda campaign - shown side by side I would expect the old windmill is maybe 50 feet tall whereas the new turbine somewhere around 400 feet tall. Buyer beware.
