wind power is one of the most cost effective power sources ever and its clean think about it if there were enough wind mills out there we could shut down 3 mile island and the bay might be worth somethin againBob ECT said:Never happen, cost isn't worth it. Even Corzine can see that
Not when you have to put them 16 miles out in the ocean. It's going to cost billions. Even Corzines committee thought it was way too expensive.CatchinaBuzz said:wind power is one of the most cost effective power sources ever and its clean think about it if there were enough wind mills out there we could shut down 3 mile island and the bay might be worth somethin again
While I was on the Mid-Atlantic COuncil there were several proposals for windmill farms. In each and every one of them there was a "security zone" (this is post 9/11 after all) around them, and no one would be allowed to moor or tie off to them either.filletone said:There seems to be a lot not said in that article. Will the areas be open to fish or closed for security reasons? Why would Cohen of CM fisheries support this if it would affect commercial fishing? Doesnt make sense to me. 6 miles off the beach of A. C. sounds like the beginning of the reef areas??

I've never seen them spin when I've gone by? You'd have to dot every mile of the country with windmills for them to generate enough power to make much of a difference, the costs would be astronomical. Make no mistake what this is about, it's about the dollars those who build and install windmills stand to make off them. End of story.
