Turbines cost you money The future of farming is in efficiency and precision. Turbine roads and towers decrease efficiency every time a field is worked whether it is planting, harvesting, tillage, spraying or other applications. Major seed companies will be less likely to grow seed corn near turbines. They need to be expedient with aerial applications which turbines hinder. Turbines can interfere with GPS, drones and any newer technology that requires a consistent signal. They do not offer nearly enough . . .

South Australians don’t want to live too close to industrial scale wind generators. We have more wind generation than any other State – in fact, we have one of the highest proportions in the world of wind power generation. More than half of Australia’s installed wind power is in South Australia. Wind-powered generation is seen as totally eco-friendly and green.

Those turbines show us that generating electricity from the wind to save the environment of tomorrow has serious consequences for the environment . . .

Wind Turbines in Hood River, Oregon Financial Risks A recent article in the Oregonian describes just how bad things can get when making revenue forecasts related to wind projects. “State officials deliberately underestimated the cost of Gov. Ted Kulongoski’s plan to lure green energy companies to Oregon with big taxpayer subsidies, resulting in a program that cost 40 times more than unsuspecting lawmakers were told – The incentives are now under intense scrutiny at the Oregon Department of Energy, which is . . .
