“Like a Good Neighbor” is not the State Farm Rep. but it’s the local wind turbine!
For wind industry spin-kings, one pesky problem that won’t go away is the routine and catastrophic collapses of their 300 tonne whirling wonders.
We’re repeatedly told that rural communities just can’t wait to have hundreds of these things speared into their backyards. Except, of course, if those backyards belong to former Greens leaders, like Dr Bob Brown.
Throwing their blades to the four winds, spontaneously combusting and collapsing in catastrophic fashion, over the last few years, there have been hundreds of ‘structural failures’ – where either 10-15 tonne blades are shredded or flung in all directions; or their 90-100m towers implode, unceremoniously delivering the 80-100 tonne nacelle to terra firma, with terrifying effect.
Here are a couple more examples of how gravity continues to conspire against the ‘inevitable’ transition.
