Re: Experimental wind power along the Maine Coast
As a person who lives a few hundred yards from a coal fired plant I would like to point out.
1) All the bad things being said about wind are true of coal, except the cost per KWH
2) The cost per KWH does not include environmental damage, hell it does not even include the damage being done to the paint job on my car.
I don't think we should blindly build windmills everywhere, but the alternative is dirty and damaging. It does have the huge political advantage that the costs are not born by the majority of the users. Maybe we would be better off if it was.
