It’s time for the next #GEInstaWalk! This time we’re going to Cape Cod, MA on May 13th with Jared Chambers, Benjamin Heath and Laura Pritchett to explore 1.5-77 megawatt GE wind turbines. We’d also like to bring three of our biggest fans along. Follow us on Instagram and comment on this photo by April 21st why you believe wind energy is awesome. You could win a chance to climb 260ft up a turbine!

A view of Stargate, the nickname for the massive grid simulator at the new wind turbine testing facility at Clemson University. Here, the world’s most advanced rig for trying and validating wind turbine drivetrains will put GE’s next-generation turbines through their paces.
