Pat Miller of WOWO talks about wind turbines and wind energy with Tom Stacy from Save Western Ohio and Larry Long and Nick Stanger from Whitley County Concerned Citizens. Summer 2011.
Tom Stacy: “Our politicians should never have asked, how many kilowatt-hours can we produce with wind – the real question should always have been, how much fossil fuel energy can wind energy replace. The two answers are very different, because so much fossil fuel energy is required in support of wind and that fossil fuel energy is in city-driving mode … and burning its fuel a lot less efficiently than it would if you just used the natural gas plant instead of wind.”
