There is a sucker born every minute
Wind Turbines produce power but how much power does it take to
operate a commercial megawatt turbine. If you knew you would never buy one.
Falmouth ,Massachusetts bought a couple and they are paying the price in health
complaints and an ongoing financial fiasco.
The Town of Falmouth has never made public or accounted for one
factor that can be important, particularly for megawatt-scale turbines: the
amount of electrical power the turbine itself consumes. Tell the public the
truth how is it costing ?
A commercial wind turbine such as the Falmouth, Massachusetts wind
turbine uses about 20 percent of its own power to operate every day. The turbine
itself is a 70 ton power plant with batteries, computers, rechargeable
batteries, transformers, capacitors, heating and cooling systems, hydraulic
brakes and warning lights.
The Falmouth wind turbine is shut down 12 hours a day under a
Massachusetts Superior Court ruling that the turbines are creating great harm to
residential abutters and people can't sleep.
The average wind turbine loses about twenty percent of its power
every day just to keep the wind turbine operating. The Falmouth wind turbines
are shut down 12 hours a day and it would be conservative to say the Town of
Falmouth has to supply up to 50 percent of the turbines power from the local
grid just like your home or business.
The Town of Falmouth or the Falmouth Energy Committee would not say
much about the increase in turbine power consumption. It would not be much of an
exaggeration to say the Falmouth politicians treats such information as a
Massachusetts state secret. Follow the money .....you will learn the
