Have a look at this website to see the blight of wind turbines on the beautiful rural landscape of France.
There are pictures of turbines with concrete masts at 183 m high. The traditional ones in Ontario will be 120 m. The funny things here is how wind developers like to claim that the scrap metal would be worth a great deal of money for anybody hosting a turbine if the company ever went bankrupt. Ya! right try to get it down and see how much that will cost you! In Europe the estimates for dismantling are approx. $1.5 million dollars and the production of concrete contributes the following:
Foundation: Each wind turbine foundation consists of a concrete octagonal footing 47 ft. in diameter and 7 ft. deep.
Footprint: 47 ft. in diameter, spaced 1 – 2,000 feet apart.
Concrete: 294 cubic yards – 439 tons per foundation.
