It looks like it gave way about halfway up the tower. The warranty must have just expired.

Sounds like the manufacturer, Siemens, has a history of bad turbines.

Drove by them on Friday and noticed them all shut down. Then cam across the reason



Looks like the total failure of another one!

I drove under a couple of them on Dos Cabezas road just a couple weeks ago. Glad it didn't fall on me. I wonder if the failure was in the structure or the foundation.

Looks like a safety issue to me. They should ALL be torn down.
