Breaking Wind In Taxpayers' Faces
With eco-pagans regnant in Washington....there seems to be no stopping *green* boondoggles like taxpayer-subsidized monuments to Mother Nature, aka wind turbines.
Some guy today told me there a a huge windfarm in Palm Springs, California that routinely was only running at one third of its capacity. Why?....supposedly on account of prohibitively high maintenance costs.
I googled this a bit but came up with nothing in the way of operating performance and/or criticism. I would welcome any help on this subject as I'm sure the info I am looking for is out there.
