FAILED: Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations, Blades and Cables
If Cape Wind was constructed as 130 Siemens 3.6 MW turbines, it would have failed.

(130) Siemens 3.6MW wind turbines.
The US has adopted the European monopole standard foundation design code (J101). Borrowing from oil and gas industries technology, they failed to…Continue
Massachusetts legislators are again pushing wind through bills that eliminate and erode obstacles, public and environmental laws that protect us, to gain unlimited development and profit potential for gov picked wind turbines. There will be no public debate.

Lessons of ENRON IGNORED spawn Billion Dollar Green Bankruptcies
It was nice to read a piece in the Boston Globe yesterday regarding FloWind because this publication rarely shines their light on green energy failures. FloWind has filed for bankruptcy protection following a slew of green company failures as the result of the policies of the former MA Governor Deval Patrick Administration; I believe that MA is the U.S. leader in green company failures. Off the top of my head these…Continue
From Seeking Alpha...First Wind is in the cross-hair of Congressional Investigators. Buzz words, "ENRON", "Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002", "Federal Stimulus"

I'm probably too annoyed to write about the most recent of MA Public Officials writing green rules that ultimately benefit them. But, this swamp drained will benefit New Englanders and silence is the voice of complicity.
There were zero comments on this Boston Globe 1/18/17 piece I read this AM which demonstrates very troubling public apathy.

1 million Acres of Ocean Area have been gifted to Enron by the Department of Energy. This Ocean Area is Public Trust that the feds were supposed to have held In Trust for US.
This is why we need to get rid of the U.S. Department of Energy. It's spin central creating the illusion of success where there is failure funded by U.S. citizens.
It's vindicating for anti-wind activists like me to read criticisms of the wind industry by representatives of the the wind industry.
Illinois- Renewable company claims 63 wind turbines, "are operating at a deficit", "are not efficient" and seeks to uproot them after only 13 yrs in operation according to management at Dallas-based Leeward Renewable Energy that has applied for a Special Use Permit from Lee County Zoning…Continue
