Cattle graze near the Pakini Nui Wind Farm at Ka Lae on the Big Island of Hawaii. The area is known for strong winds and has been the site of several wind farms. The Pakini Nui Wind Farm replaced the nearby Kamaoa Wind Farm in 2007 after the Kamaoa project fell into disrepair and was closed in 2006. The Pakini Nui project consists of 14 General Electric 1.5 MW wind turbines . The wind turbines add 21 megawatts of capacity to the Big Island -- enough power for more than 10,000 homes. Each blade of the pictured turbines is 100 feet long. Ka Lae also known as South Point, is the most southernmost point of the 50 United States.
