Recorded during 2014 Illinois Solar Tour. This solar powered sunflower is located inside Southwind Park in Springfield Illinois – off Interstate 55 take Toronto Road exit 90. At night this sunflower can be seen from I-55.

Unfortunately wind turbine on property is still needing repaired. Company who manufactured it is no longer in business. Some smaller turbine producers have ceased operation – large scale wind turbine manufacturers have flourished in United States and worldwide.

I didn’t have wind reduction enabled during recording. It was a windy day – so you might want to make sure to turn volume down.
