Wind Speed

Best Case Performance

Justify STOPPING the Destruction

Since we seldom or do not get Real Time performance power output reporting from Turbine Owners or Wind Farm Owners I took it upon myself to create a Spreadsheet where with a few outside links as tool we can log the Wind Speeds of various sites.

I have initially created a TAB for the 6 New England States with hopes that other Wind Warriors across the nation will join in. -- At which point I will Duplicate the Master Sheet for that State.

This endeavor will require some reliable Volunteers that are not in the pockets of the Wind Industry. It does not require a Daily responsibility just a desire to take a quick sampling of as low as 1 turbine or farm or as many as desired. 14 locations took as little as 5 minutes of my time to log now that I have gotten used to what needs to be done once the Base Data has been completed. Once the base data is completed, it is a simple 4-5 step process.

■ Select The Location to monitor

■ Go to the linked Map(s)

■ View the Wind Speed provided and Enter the data in the Spreadsheet

■ Enter the Day of the week in the appropriate Column (Provided in Header)

■ At the End of the day Make the Day's Data a permanent part of the Record

■ At the End of the Week Make the Weekly Data Permanent.

■ The Weekly Data will be shown at the Bottom of the section as the Annual Recording to date.

Improvements Made (Wind Log II)
■ One sheet Data Collection
■ Record up to 24 Hourly records, auto-updated from data collection sheet.
■ Daily Log Updates Calendar Log automatic
■ Calendar Log Updates with New Recordings Automatically, providing updated info with new entries.
■ Updated Sampling Page to include links to Satellite imagery as available.

Help (/ Contact) Information Provided
Only Volunteers will have access to the spreadsheet. Others refer to the Published Document.

Updated "Sampling Page" to include links to View Turbines or Farms, as allowed by Current Imagery via Satellite.

We are gaining some Support in Maine's Legislature, so now we need to provide some evidence as best we can. These would be the best case scenario's in favor of the Industry. Last week as I was Creating this, the wind activity was pitiful. Some of this past weeks data is not too great either.

Even if you happen to get the proof that a wind farm is lying about energy output and committing PTC fraud, about all you can do with the information is tell your friends what bastards there are behind this industry.  We know this because no matter how many eagles or endangered species are being killed, or how incredibly rigged a wind industry mortality study is………. The media will not report it and nothing ever happens to this green mafia in America.

Due to the High Winds in Maine yesterday and still strong this morning as shown in the Log, there could have been some good production time. (assuming the Gusts of wind prevented it) Unfortunately, there was no place to send the power with all the damage in Southern New England. I would bet, that they did not ramp down other facilities to accommodate the potential unusually high output of wind.

I doubt they can instantly turn the Turbines off for each Gusting Blast then back on again once the Gust passes, so I would assume they may remain Off and out of production until the Wind Storm Gusts pass.

Here is another method. A while back I sent this out to southern CA because I kept hearing how the Ocotillo turbines were hardly ever spinning.                                                                                    Since this industry lies about  everything even their real company names, it would be very interesting to get the official annual or quarterly reported energy from the Ocotillo turbines, then check these operators for PTC fraud. There is a way to get a pretty good idea of the energy outputs from these turbines by watching them.  Manufacturers give outputs for specific wind conditions and RPM with their turbines.  On the East coast reported outputs for all turbines are in the range of 32% of capacity which means that these turbines must be spinning with average wind speeds of about 7 meters per Sec or 16 mph 24 hours a day every day of the year.  I do not believe it.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 With At Ocotillo, if residents can watch or video the blade rotations and keep track of wind conditions they can get a pretty good idea of the actual energy outputs from these turbines. Of course unless winds are at least 3-4 meters per sec, the blades will not turn and there is no energy being produced.  Noting blade rotations per minute will let people know the approximate energy level these turbines are performing at and for what amount of time.  I got this idea after seeing one large turbine in Red Bluff, motionless almost every time I drove by it on the freeway.  Below is the Manufacturers’ energy performance chart for the 2.3 MW Siemens turbines.

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT


(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.”

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
