How nice that Connecticut feels it's important to get behind wind power as a "symbol". It's indeed a great symbol -- of ideology, political correctness and reckless government meddling triumphing over empiricism and common sense.
In this article, Sen. Bob Duff, the head of the Connecticut legislature's Energy and Technology Committee makes the statement that Connecticut does not have great wind power, lacking mountains and "no access to the Atlantic Ocean". Of course that doesn't stop Connecticut's mandates from causing wind turbines to be planned for low terrain in places like Aroostook County with poor wind resources deemed marginal on U.S. Department of Energy maps.
And Duff's statement about the Atlantic Ocean is curious given that NREL maps show that "good" wind power potential exists about three miles offshore along almost the entire Connecticut coastline in relatively shallow LI Sound - a lot closer to Connecticut's electricity thirsty population centers than northern Maine.
