Wind Energy Math Calculations: Estimating the Height of a Wind Turbine Using Triangles

If you have seen a real utility-scale wind turbine, you know that they are REALLY TALL! But how tall are they exactly? Of course no measuring tape is long enough to reach the top of a wind
turbine, so if you want to find the height, you’ll have to use another method.
