- Wind turbines are often out of action. The smaller farm up the road by the casino is never more than 80% operational (just count the number of towers that are idle when you drive by.) That's 20% of the profit gone before you even start talking about cost of the equipment, efficiency, maintenance, weather patterns, expected life of the turbines etc.

Green power is nothing more than a political football and a waste of taxpayer money.
No kidding, i drove out there after a storm and the wind i guess had torn off a ton of those arms.
