Bangui Beach WindmillsI was taking a tour of Luzon on a motorbike and came across this windmill farm.

It was a surprise to see this high tech wind generation set up here in the Philippines.

Northwind, a Danish outfit,  supplied the generators and expertise for the project.

I got sidelined by a few San Miguels at the karaoke bar and had to put my tent up in the dark. There was a typhoon passing through the Philippines further south but we were spared from the storm.windmill and sunset

  1. Photos looks like taken from another country :) It’s refreshing to see Windmills up north…haven’t traveled farther than Isabela so these are all new to me.

  2. Just found your site! I love everthing Philippines!
    Awesome pics! Where are you at now? Have a house in Iloilo and we visit there when we can.

    I will definatley subscribe. Thanks for all the work you put into this site.

  3. It possible in the province of batangas to operate a windmill? How much is the average cost of a windmill? Thank you very much.

  4. I kind of like the idea of using windmills to generate electricity. There is the observaton that some birds hypnotically fly into the moving blades and are killed.

    One solution – I have read that if the third windmill blade is created in a darker color it somehow prevents this.
