Puerto Rico contains two large-scale wind farms (totaling over 120 megawatts) and small-scale single turbines along the coasts.
Puerto Rico lost 120 megawatts of land-based wind turbine power in one storm.
Hurricane Maria wiped out almost every wind turbine on the island.
Two land-based wind turbine farms supply the bulk of the renewable energy generation, Santa Isabel, and Punta de Lima. The rest of the turbines are along the coast similar to Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
Puerto Rico started to invest in wind energy to help get the country out of debt which appears to be one of the worst decisions they ever made. Industrial wind is a bunco scheme of enormous consequence.The people who value intellectual honesty should not quietly be fleeced by such mendacity, even from their government and the news media.
Most of the commercial-scale turbines installed today are 2 megawatts in size and cost roughly $3-$4 million installed.
The wind turbine repairs in Puerto Rico would be much higher as the older turbines would be removed first.
Puerto Rico is a Caribbean island and unincorporated U.S. territory.
Puerto Rico has around the same amount of wind turbine megawatts as that of the state of Massachusetts.
Massachusetts hasn't seen a hurricane since Hurricane Bob in 1991.
Massachusetts politicians have taken the health and property rights of citizens with land-based wind turbines and now plan to put wind turbines in the ocean despite what happened in Puerto Rico.
Massachusetts taxpayers have to start asking why the politicians are gambling with their health and pocketbooks.
