Windpower Wednesday Photo of the Day: May 16, 2018

Today’s Windpower Wednesday Photo of the Day, by Subodh Naatu of India, was one of the winners in last year’s Global Wind Day photo competition.

In this award winning shot, a mechanic inspects the blades of the windmill before fitting on the rotor to ensure perfect working of the windmill.

The competition, “Wind Vision”  is run by WindEurope and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC).

Plus, the winner gets €1,000 plus bragging rights. And the winning photographs will be displayed at the WindEurope Summer Reception in Brussels and across both WindEurope and GWEC’s channels.
