Conserve electricity – wind power no help  

Credit:  Letter to the editor: conserve electricity - wind power no help | Capital Journal | February 15, 2021 | www.capjournal.com ~~

This morning (Feb. 15) I woke up to 27 below. I looked outside at the 14 wind turbines I see from my window, not one was turning.

All day yesterday (Feb. 14) the Oahe Electric staff was putting out alerts on social media asking people to limit showers, grain drying, drying clothes, baking, etc. because electricity was in dangerously short supply. They said, “there were limited wind resources from North Dakota to Arkansas.”

Did you know that wind turbines actually consume electricity (from hydro and fossil fuels) to keep the oil and computers warm? Now that really makes a lot of sense. We are supposed to limit our use of electricity so it can go to a wind turbine to keep it warm but is not turning or producing anything.

Texas, the state with the most wind turbines, reported a similar problem, their natural gas supply is critically low, and half of the wind turbines were frozen.

If you think this is a problem, now, just wait till Noem and Biden cover South Dakota with more worthless wind turbines. Wind Energy is one of the biggest scams in our lifetime. Just follow the money. It goes from taxpayers to multinational corporations and politicians.

—Gregg Hubner, Avon
