Another company is trying to blight the country with oil filled wind turbines. The only winner with new fields is Wall Street since they grab the tax credits. Turbines will never create enough electricity to replace coal in Illinois, they will increase the cost of electricity however. Most jobs created are temporary! Landowners are frequently absent which means they don’t live in turbine shadows. People in the area will fight this new project:
The videos below are turbines not turning when wind exists – others are turning. I could post MANY more dead monsters. Disposal of blades after their useful life is still a problem. They are ending up in landfills, of course fossil fuels truck them there one at a time.
See this previous story: https://blnnews.com/2021/07/09/green-turbines/
and the pic from east of Bloomington – that’s OIL!
The local environmentalists need to install turbines at their house instead of where they don’t have to hear or see them. The wind farm east of Bloomington was approved 16 years ago. Since it is nearing the end of it’s useful life, the County needs to see what the owners will do with the field instead of approving more. The owners were required to have a $25,000 bond on each one for removal. Anybody think that will cover the cost?
