The Anonymous Widower

Are Wind Farms A Good Idea?

A wind turbine in Devon has collapsed in high winds according to this article on the BBC.

I suspect engineers and investigators will find the cause of the collapse, but it illustrates one of the problems with turbines.

Failures like these stiffen the resolve of people, who don’t want them nearby, making the costs of the installation even more uneconomic.

If we need to develop renewable power sources, there are better systems available, than putting multiple blots on the landscape.
