Built by NorthWind Development Corporation, the windmills of Bangui has become one of the many prides of Ilocos Norte. We were on a hurry the first time we visited Ilocos Norte so I only got to see the gigantic wind turbines from a distance.
Perfectly fitted in the shores of Bangui, the wind farm consists of 20 wind turbines, standing 70 meters tall, each equipped with three 41-meter blades.
Facing the South China Sea, these windmills are lined up to catch the rage of the South-East monsoons and turn them to renewable source of energy. Now, you may ask how strong the winds are to be a source of energy for Ilocanos. Let these waves answer you…
Now, the sky’s cooperating! 🙂
These colossal fans have turned the once silent and simple municipality into an entrepreneurial community with stores selling miniature windmills, garlics and shirts with windmill pictures.
