Turbines take a summer break?  

users.globalnet.co.uk

No Cefn Croes turbines have been turning in August, and they were also idle in late-June/early-July – just a year after their fanfare opening by Assembly Minister Andrew Davies. Other wind-farms nearby were working, so wind wasn’t the problem. A site inspection revealed that the problem is faulty blades; you can read more here:

Cefn Croes has become a carbon emitter – a diesel generator is hard at work at the substation; the new road network is generating more pollution and (environmentally-friendly?) income for the Forestry Commission as a motor sports venue; and the dead peat continues to exhale its stored carbon as it dries out.

Operators Falck weren’t telling anyone why the turbines had stopped, so we’re entitled to speculate, aren’t we, whether there’s been a mechanical failure, a power line failure, or grid overload?
