EL PASO, TEXAS, USA · SEPTEMBER 2014 · SIXTEEN EDDY GT TURBINES 

 

Near the El Paso International Airport, 16 UGE wind turbines line the highway as part of the Airway Gateway Renovation Project.

Public artist Vicki Scuri designed the project to celebrate the potential for wind power in the state of Texas, creating an effect that instantly makes the turbines stand out on the skyline. UGE and partner Better Living Technology LLC carried out the installation of the turbines atop a steel tower custom-fabricated by local metal shop Caid Industries. 

After dark, wind power illuminates LED lights on the 16 towers. Blending both art and function, the project brings a unique achievement in sustainable design to El Paso residents and visitors alike.
