The weather in most regions of Mongolia is incredible fierce and now they are looking to harness those long winters and harsh winds to generate clean energy for future generations.

The wind turbines in Salkhit Mongolia will each tower 384 feet upward, and each blade will be a whopping 120 feet long. They have been engineered to withstand the severe weather that blasts the land.  Each turbine can produce 1.6 MW and the entire project is projected to produce 50 MW and 168.5 million kilowatt hours. Estimates project the wind farm will save the country 122,000 tons of coal and keep 180,000 tons of CO2 out of the atmosphere.
