WIND TURBINE MAINTENANCE COSTS 3 TIMES HIGHER THAN EXPECTED
According to this report the operating and maintenance costs of wind turbines is up to three times the amount that was estimated when they were installed. It seems they produce an inadequate and intrmittent supply of electricity at an exhorbitant cost. Not only that, but they also require back up generators using fossil fuels for when the wind is not sufficient. This is the government's solution to the looming energy crisis!
