I know exactly what got the wind turbine. The dirty little secret is that they don't work in ACTUAL high winds. The tower can't take it, so they feather the prop to let the wind pass and lock the motor. It generates no power, but allows the tower to present the least resistance.

On this one, either the wind sensor failed, and the computer didn't know how high the wind was, or the computer failed, and it tried to keep generating power instead of feathering and shutting down.
