Re: “Wind Power Now

Be careful what you ask for. Industrial wind turbines are a new technology most people have no experience with. Their builders know this and paint a glowing picture and make billions of dollars doing it. Here are accounts written by people who know them up close and personal : https://gatehousenews.com/windfarms/in-you…

Re: “Wind Power Now

Industrial wind turbines constructed in our windy locations require more and more transmission lines to connect them to the grid. The fire danger from transmission lines in high winds is the reason PG+E shuts off the power. Industrial wind turbines produce no power during low wind conditions so we still must maintain backup generation equal to everything we maintain now. They also have to be shut down in extremely high wind conditions to prevent failure. When they malfunction the turbines themselves turn into incendiary devices located in our forests that can't be extinguished, due to their height, the materials they're constructed from and hundreds of gallons of lubricating oil that they contain. They destroy the ecosystem around the installation by killing off the bats, birds, insects, and earthworms. The vibrations produced by these machines (the newest ones are 853 feet tall with a propeller 722 feet in diameter moving at 200-300 miles per hour) are audible and sub-audible and can travel over twenty miles under some conditions and have serious consequences for people and animals living in the area. The flashing lights atop the towers run day and night to prevent airplanes from colliding with the turbines. The strobe effect that the blades create when the sun is behind them makes life a misery for anyone unfortunate enough to be in their shadow. Their construction, installation, operation, and maintenance is an industrial project on a scale that dwarfs anything most locations have ever been asked to tolerate. To try and apply existing zoning laws to these massive industrial installations that can run day and night 24/7 is ridiculous. These are just some of the problems. They are a developing technology that may have a place in the energy picture but based on results their flaws make them more of a problem for the environment than a solution. Local rooftop solar panels, for electric and hot water, is a better answer. The following links are interesting reading:Industrial Wind Turbines

Re: “Why I Support Terra-Gen's Wind Project

I live in Petrolia. I believed wind power was an answer until I started doing research into industrial wind turbines and what other rural communities have experienced. People welcome them thanks to the sales pitch and green bias that comes with them. They find out too late that the truth is nothing like the fantasy. In exchange for Terra Gens optimistic estimate of .33 percent, that is one third of one percent, of California's electrical needs, here is what we get: They will be in the windiest locations we have in the most rugged wildfire prone areas. Areas that have the most carbon dense storage in the USA. And just upwind of the largest old growth redwood forest left on earth. Industrial wind turbines catch on fire: http://turbinesonfire.org/ They will decimate the raptor and bat population on the Lost Coast. Destroy residential real estate values. Create an industrial area full of ultralow frequency sound out of what is now a world class destination for ecotourism: https://stopthesethings.com/2015/06/15/sa-farmers-paid-1-million-to-host-19-turbines-tell-senate-they-would-never-do-it-again-due-to-unbearable-sleep-destroying-noise/ With all do respect Mr. Winkler, take another look.
