We just blogged about this 4 days ago. From the couple of hundreds of gallons of oil, to the NON recyclable blades to the hundreds of lbs of rare earth elements, to the massive toxic batteries, there is NOTHING GREEN about renewable energy. This is a falsehood, a lie, spread by BigWind and their green fanatics. … Continue reading BigWind requires a BigDig (for expansion)
So, why not just use batteries to store BigWind energy? Battery storage is simply not dense enough. Read below and you will see the limitations. It does not make sense. We need energy DENSE sources that are efficient, dispatchable and inexpensive (nuclear/gas/coal/hydro) for our homes and businesses. Batteries, though rechargeable, are not green. Visit a … Continue reading Will Batteries be the savior for BigWind? No and they are NOT green
In the past, we have blogged about the poor performance of industrial wind energy turbines in Ohio (just ask USV/ONU schools about this!). It is public record that they actually produce less than 40% of what they touted to the public. Remember how many homes were to be powered by an industrial site? Hogwash! Anyway, … Continue reading Why can’t batteries save BigWind in Ohio?
Have you educated yourselves about these truths? Please do and share with others. As you read in our last post, BigWind, the pollster allies and lobbying groups are quick to persuade our legislators a 'different story'. Have you shared these truths with anyone today?? How about your legislators??..... ...When Baldosser states that wind turbines’ “efficiency … Continue reading Ohio letter shows what is wrong w BigWind
This story will become commonplace as we put more industrial wind sites on our energy grid. Why? The wind does not blow at a constant rate. The output of an industrial wind turbine looks more like a polygraph test, with the line going up and down. Everytime the line drops down, we need traditional energy … Continue reading Maui experiences power outage when the BigWinds stop blowing
Note: The energy per unit of mass in a battery is much lower than than our common fuels like gasoline. When is the last time you threw away a battery? Can you imagine the landfill waste that will be generated if we begin to build turbines with massive batteries inside? Some batteries contain toxic metals … Continue reading Will Wind Turbine BATTERIES destroy their GREEN image?
Would this tarnish BigWind's "green" image...How is the use/storage of 75000 LITERS of sulfuric acid/vanadium pentoxide "green"? I believe that Vanadium is used as a catalyst to convert sulfur dioxide into sulfuric acid, hence the term battery "acid". Where does Vanadium come from? Predominantly China... The Scottish island of Gigha is to be the focus … Continue reading BigWind will want you to believe that 75,000Liters of Battery Acid is “Green”
