In another example of how Honda is looking forward and blazing the trail of environmentally-friendly auto manufacturing, Honda announced it will install two wind turbines that will supply 10% of the energy for its Russell Point, Ohio plant.
According to this article, “These wind turbines stand at 160 feet tall; the blades will be 160 feet long…They are to generate 10,000 MWh per year, which is enough to power 800 houses.”
