Wind Power Question: Are there any turbines that look like old fashioned windmills?

Answer: The old fashioned windmill is viewed with nostalgia, and some people prefer the look of them to that of their modern counterparts. Just because wind turbines are modern, it doesn't mean they won't look just as good over time.

Modern wind turbines are simply an improvement on the old windmill with every aspect of their design being optimized. Modern wind turbines are far more efficient than the old style windmills at generating electricity. To make them look more old-fashioned would just result in more expensive electricity, and increased noise pollution.
