I would agree, there at least 40% not turning close to me on the Altamont
Pass in Northern CA, they get bought by companies for a big Tax break and
are never maintained, so they fall apart.  It looks like a Wind Farm
graveyard up there on the pass with broken parts and towers lying where the
fall for years. Plus when they do work, they do a good job of culling the
Golden Eagle population.

They are sprouting like weeds. Huge  things. Today I passed several 
miles-long wind generation farms along I-40. I  noted that about every 10th

things have reliability problems, or are they  just being installed and not 
working yet? Anyone have a clue?
