Report: Costly wind turbines projected to yield $1.39 in daily savings

A small Washington state city spent more than $100,000 on three “windmill-like turbines” – but any hopes for big savings appear to be blowing in the wind.

The Peninsula Daily News reported that the Port Angeles turbines, which haven’t yet been turned on, are expected to generate $1.39 per day in electricity, or roughly $42 per month.

The turbines were meant to help illuminate a local park. Now, some city council members are having second thoughts about their unanimous approval for the project.

“I did not realize they would produce so little energy. I wouldn’t have voted for it knowing it was that little,” City Councilwoman Sissi Bruch told The Peninsula Daily News. ………

…..Nathan West, director of Community and Economic Development for the city, told FoxNews.com in an email that daily savings could be as high as $5.44 “at peak windspeed” but cautioned that “determination of actual benefit in dollars at this time would be speculative because the spires are not yet operational.” …….

…. The city council voted in October 2015 to approve $107,516 out of a total $285,952 county funding grant to purchase the turbines from Urban Green Energy.

…..

The lower-than-anticipated savings could be even lower depending on the eventual cost of maintaining the turbines in the harsh and salty environment, Port Angeles Deputy Power Systems Manager Shailesh Shere told the newspaper.

Though some members of the council may not be sold on the alternative energy initiative, there were those who never bought into the promised cost savings in the first place.

“My fundamental objection to these is that they are not cost-effective and it’s a waste of money,” former deputy director of power systems Phil Lusk told the paper.

Hilarious!!!!!  Don’t worry about the harsh, salty environment!  At $5/day, you’ll have the $100,000 back in nearly 55 years!!!!!!  With or without maintenance, they’ll be long gone by then.  Of course, the county won’t get their money back, so, there’s that, and, they’ll never see $5.00/day savings, but, still …….

I remain hopeful that a Trump administration can curb these colossal wastes of money, time, resources, and energy. 

Parting thought ……. how many Solyendras could have housed how many homeless people?  …… asking for a friend

    You know…..I gotta tell you…..don’t let your guard down
    Half the people you see when you’re out and about…..are total lunatics!

  3. “I did not realize they would produce so little energy. I wouldn’t have voted for it knowing it was that little,” ….

    Hmmmm, where have we heard that before…voting for something before knowing a thing about it. Surely from no one that could still be a major factor in our politics.

  4. philjourdan says:

    Maybe the left should start reading bills before passing them to find out what is in them. Ya think?

  5. Jason Calley says:

    Of course the reason why the wind turbines are such a good deal is that the people who decided to get the turbines did not have to pay for them out of their own pockets. $100,000 is even a good deal for a used car… as long as I get to use it and you get to pay for it.

    “Die Cis Scum” has decided to be a pretty girl now. She says wanting to kill all heteros was just a phase. Wonder how much money she made with the youtube video.

    So this is what the leftists paid for:
    (Big) bird sliced and killed by green energy. Disturbing to watch:

    Nothing says just because you’re the pope…you can’t be a sleazy slimy hairball

    • Me says:

      You mean this Poop, err I mean Pope!

    • Leftinflagstaff says:

      Wonder what the penalty for heresy will be this time.

    • Latitude says:

      People have got to stop falling for this…and thinking he’s stupid
      Thinking these people are stupid is what’s going to cause us to lose. He’s not stupid…he’s a manipulating liar.
      The church is losing members in countries that pay..
      ..and gaining members in countries that get paid
      He’s not going to gain any members by saying don’t pay….and he’s buying third world members by telling them the church will get them something.

      • Leftinflagstaff says:

        I’m hopeful that we just voted to stop falling for it.

        • Latitude says:

          well….just look at who’s doing the pissing and moaning
          Every political, government, country…every organization…every business…every everything that was in line to get our money

          ..and we pissed in their Wheaties and messed up their little game

        • Leftinflagstaff says:

          Well, again, I’m hopeful. The Wheaties pissing looks promising. But hasn’t officially started yet. Get back to me in four years.

        • Latitude says:

          dunno either…but it looks like he’s appointing all the Wheaties pissers out there! LOL

        • Latitude says:

          Rex Tillerson and John Bolton!

          He’s hitting all my favorite people!

        • suyts says:

          I’m a big fan of Bolton ….. not so much Tillerson.

        • philjourdan says:

          If it gives the left the red a$$, I am a fan!

        • Latitude says:

          I’m 100% for Tillerson…tell you why
          Secretary of State has got to know how to work and work around…I doubt there’s anyone on the face of this planet that knows how to do that better than him
          Let’s face it…it’s all about the oil and gas anyway

        • Latitude says:

          Put this in perspective….
          No one is better for Secretary of State..than the person that’s been doing that job for years anyway. No one knows these countries and how to negotiate with them better than Tillerson. He knows them all and they all know him too.
          But that’s not the amazing part….Trump just got the head, CEO, of Exxon Mobile to quit his job….and come to work for him!
          …That’s F’in amazing!!

        • Run what actually is a business, like a business. With people who have knowledge of doing so. Understand effective expenditures vs wasteful ones. And give it the efficiency to not require an unlimited ATM from the taxpayer.

        • Latitude says:

          Thanks Me!….exactly Left
          The worst people to run a government are career politicians…
          …all they want to do is get elected again

          It is only a business….and certainly not a community organizer

      • philjourdan says:

        It has nothing to do with who gets paid and who does not. The Pope is an SJW – who does have a degree in a science, but is clueless on what science is (the old adage of if you do not use it, you lose it). I think his intentions are pure, but his knowledge is what is lacking.

  10. Me says:

    So??? Who has ever did a search for somethang online and diddy not find what you were searching for?????

    • Me says:

      And who made a perosn admit to what he said that can’t be found again!?!?!?

      • Me says:

        But he admitted it to it here! Cause he couldn’t get away with it! LMAO!

        • Me says:

          And everyone here knowles, pardon the punn, about it but if anyone knowles more about it is certain people that you know that are trying to do what they do. Because if anyone knowles they knowles! LMAO! Exactly the same thang I said about knowles!

        • Me says:

          Now it wouldn’t suprise Me if all of a sudden a knowles post appears, after no one could find it!

  11. Me says:

    Now, Dave, Back to you! Bwaaaaaaaahahahahaha!

    • Me says:

      I am of the mindset that this is what it is, but if you are of the religious type, and doing what you are doing, you are not doing yourself any favours!

  12. Me says:

    Everyone will be judged, right? Then so be it! Lets see how that works out in the end!

  13. DirkH says:

    Re Tillerson, there’s a bizarre article in German Clinton-Machine-MSM where the writing communist practically faints because, shock horror, TILLERSON IS A BUDDY OF THE RUSSKIS.
    Meaning, he wouldn’t possibly wage WW III.
    These people are so stupid they don’t even know how their stuff reads. So it looks like Tillerson is great news.

    http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/rex-tillerson-das-ist-der-neue-us-aussenminister-a-1125746.html
    This is SOO amusing, another gem: “Since WW 2 it is tradition in the USA to try to dampen Russias influence. Nomination of Tillerson means a radical departure from that strategy.”

    Well then it would be about time as since 1990 THE USSR DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE…

    The vile slime in our newsrooms is so desperate…
