Abandoned Dreams of Wind and Light

Like the vanished, money making dreams that spawned them, it can be hard to find abandoned solar and wind farms.

The most impressive are in the United States, where investors slammed up wind turbines and solar panels in the aftermath of the 1970s energy crisis. Everyone expected oil to get even more expensive, and government subsidies and tax breaks for renewable energy were easy to get. But oil prices didn’t climb as anticipated, and as the subsidies went away, so too did many developers of wind and solar farms, no longer interested when the money wasn’t right. Projects were sold, or left in the sun and wind.

Solar panels and wind turbines are not brick, concrete, or stone. They’re relatively easy to remove, and most are built with a plan to tear them down at some point.

But there are a few places you can still go to wander among abandoned dreams of wind and light… 

WINDMILLS - BRING OUT THE SUN

Hey guys, I’m proud to finally show off what I’ve been working on. Here’s the artwork I made for Framework and Rex Rey from Windmills for their new Demon’s Souls inspired single! You may recognize these guys as the extremely talented hip-hop duo that @EpicNameBro featured in some of his videos! 

You can check out the track here:
