Wind Energy: Part-Time Power – Full-Time Failure: Brand New Turbines Falling Apart

Wind power isn’t a serious energy source, it’s a serious joke. In the absence of massive subsidies, the wind industry wouldn’t exist. Battling to deliver part-time power, it’s been a full-time failure.

Self-combustingthrowing 10 tonne blades to the four winds and dropping their 300 tonne hulks earthwards is just what these things do.

But, then again, they were never designed to generate power; their principal purpose is to harvest subsidies. Which probably explains why brand-new turbines keep falling apart.
