Abandoned Turbines

 

Wind Energy Turbine developers may state that their turbines are designed to operate up to 25-30 years. But the reality is closer to only 12-15 years.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/energy/windpower/9770837/Wind-farm-turbines-wear-sooner-than-expected-says-study.html  What happens, then? Could Ohio become a gravesite for turbines? Can we afford to maintain and operate them, as they age? Probably not, if you read this exhaustive industry survey.  According to it, “O&M costs are double or even triple initial projections…and wind farm return on investment is around -21%…O&M costs can now be expected to increase on average 253% over the 20 year life of the various wind machines”http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/315977#1xzzndrzmpop
