Bluegrass Ridge Wind Farm producing less energy and at higher cost than anticipatedMissouri's Bluegrass Ridge Wind Farm in Gentry County is producing less energy and at a higher cost than was anticipated. The goal was to produce 2 percent of Missouri's energy in 2008, at a cost of $80 per megawatt-hour. The actual amount has been between 0.5 percent and 1.4 percent a month.

DK-horns-rev-wake-effect.jpg
Turbulence wake effectAt wind farms where many towers are clustered together, turbulence generated by the massive blades can degrade the performance of other windmills by as much as 10-20 percent. The same turbulence can also trigger vibrations in turbines downwind, leading to component fatigue, excess maintenance costs, and premature part failure. The turbines' wake effect is clearly seen at the Horns Rev offshore wind farm in the North Sea west of Denmark.
