This achievement is very time consuming, so don't expect to get this one in a short time span (leave comment if I stand corrected wink). The following tips are from when I played on the Westbridge map.

The wind turbine cost's $1,200,000 in the store. Pretty hefty price, but you achieve an income of $4,000/hr so not a bad payoff if I do say so myself. There are two ways you can accomplish receiving enough funds for this item:

Option 1: I started on the easy difficulty since I had little debt and more capital. I started out growing Canola as it is much easier to harvest and is the third highest valued type crop in the game. I would then plant more crop after each harvest (make sure after each planting that you hit start and change your speed to x120 and change growing speed to fast instead of normal). Don't be afraid to spend a little money on better equipment and buy more fields (I only needed fields 15, 16 and 17) along the way. Also make sure to buy the MAN TGS 18.440 truck as well as the Krampe SB 30/60 when hauling your crop from the silo's to a vendor (I chose Flour Mill most of the time since they had the highest price on Canola).

As you are storing your crop, make sure you take a load to the vendor every once in a while to maintain some income for the next planting. Once you have stored somewhere between 800,000-1,000,00 tons, wait till a great demand for Canola pops up and sell all of it ASAP. Once that is done you'll be seeing dollars rolling in. By then you should have enough money to achieve your goal of getting the turbine.

Option 2: After generating enough money from selling canola, Dump everything in your inventory and invest in growing corn. Besides buying a Tractor to haul the Cultivator and the Sowing Machine, you'll need to buy the following key vehicles:

- Fliegl TMK 266 Bull
- Krone Big X 1110 w/ Krone Easycollect 1053 Header
- New Holland W 170 C Wheel Loader with a Lizard Universal Bucket

These three items plus the other vehicles will cost somewhere around $750,000-$900,000 (this includes buying Field's 19 and 20 on the southern end of the map near the Biogas Plant). Once you start growing Corn, harvest all the Chaff and store it in the Biogas plant. After a couple of harvest's, go ahead and hit cn_RB to put the chaff into fermentation and wait.

Once fermentation is done use the wheel loader to dump the newly created silage into the unloading pit. Silage is the most highly valued crop in the game at roughly $3,000 - $3,500 per ton (almost double during a great demand period).

Once you obtain the $1,200,000 simply hit cn_Y, go to the Placeables section on the right of the store, select Wind Turbine and place it anywhere on the Farm and the achievement will pop up shortly.

If anyone finds a cheaper alternative to making money quick or used a different method from the one's mentioned above, please comment below.
