I admit it I love wind turbines but for those of you who think they are an eyesore...look what was done in Oklahoma - world's largest rooftop wind farm, vertical wind turbines, wind power, wind energy, wind farm
2.26.14 - Offshore wind farms can tame hurricanes, study finds - Stanford study finds that huge arrays consisting of "78,000 wind turbines — each 50 feet tall — off New Orleans could have slowed Katrina's wind speeds up to 78 mph and cut its storm surge up to 79%. An even larger phalanx off the East Coast could have reduced Sandy's winds up to 87 mph and its storm surge up to 34%. These farms minimize a city's storm surge most when located directly upwind."
Necessity is the mother of invention - most amazing wind farms. Better than messing up a landscape elsewhere. Setting these up in already degraded soils is better than compromising valuable, unspoiled land. - #AlternativePower
Offshore wind farms create 'reef effect' perfect for marine wildlife - especially seals - “Things like barnacles and mussels will settle on hard structures and then that in turn will attract other marine species and it builds up over time.”
