Re: those Great Big Windmills..
We have a bunch around here...When a few went up 10 or 15 years ago, I thought that's kind of neat.
Then, I started reading about the actual cost of these things and that they would take up to 40 years to pay for the cost of installing them. Not sure if that's true or not, just what I read....but they can't be cheap. The government here had to subsidize the snot out of them so the investors would make money. Guess us taxpayers pay for that.
Also, I have heard that we have had a couple fail and turn themselves into a pile of scrap metal after only 4 years.
Maybe, I'm not a fan.
