Wind turbine’s power? Equal to ’50s VW  

Credit:  Savannah Morning News | January 13, 2014 | savannahnow.com ~~

Regarding your Sunday article about the gift of a 50-kilowatt wind turbine to the City of Tybee, to put the proposed gift of a 50-kilowatt wind turbine to the city of Tybee into terms anyone can understand, 50 kilowatts is about the amount of power (67 horsepower) of a 1950s Volkswagen.

Who in their right mind would spend $134,000 for a Volkswagen that would only run 40 percent to 60 percent of the time (i.e. produce power) regardless of how sporty it looked?

That wind turbine may not kill any birds but it would surely be an albatross around Tybee’s neck.
