TEHACHAPI TURBINES ON - WHILE CLEVEHOGA "STUDIES"
Submitted by Jeff Buster on Sun, 02/22/2009 - 17:08.
While Clevehoga is trying to measure the ice on Lake Erie (and the ice thickness which the"Task Force" is trying to measure is not even the critical or necessary measurement - it is pack ice, not floe ice, which is most apt to push over water based wind turbines) California and many other states are installing their second or third generations of improved wind turbines.
This is a photo of the northwest face of the wind gap at Tehachapi, California. Looks like the old oil patch doesn't it? These are Zond Corporation turbines - near two decades old and still cranking. Now this is Yankee Engineering...
Ten or more of these old machines are replaced by one new multi-megawatt turbine, improving output and diminishing visual impact.
