Wind Farms Across America
According to the American Wind Energy Association, wind farms across America operate in 40 states plus Puerto Rico and produce more than 88,000 jobs.
With heights that often exceed 200 feet, wind turbines are considered obstructions to air navigation by the FAA and require approved illumination to ensure aircraft pilots can identify and avoid them. Flash Technology began selling to the wind industry in 2000. To date, Flash Technology has supplied more than 16,000 lighting systems across America.
