Recently the wind turbines east of Bloomington have frequently been dead. See this SHORT video from a few minutes ago:
The McLean County Board approved the initial wind farm on 9/20/2005. Approval included the below:
Twelve years after construction, the owner is required to escrow $25,000 for decommissioning. $25,000 may not cover the cost, but 12 years is rapidly approaching – 2017.
Turbines all over the country have been abandoned and left to rust. Since these are frequently off, will they suffer the same fate?
If I owned farm land with wind turbines, I’d be asking questions.
