    Tehachapi Turbine Trouble. Time-out for Vermonts NEK?

    in Environment

    Tehachapi Turbine Trouble --  Penny Melko will be on the program from Tehachapi (to talk about the impacts of replacing small, older turbines with monsters.  Are they really less impactful?  We also hope to talk about planned future developments in that area.   From Wikipedia --   Wind development in the Tehachapi Pass began in the early 1980s. The area hosts a multitude of wind farms, comprising one of California's largest wind resource areas. The pass is undergoing much repowering activity. The area has multiple generations of wind turbine technology installed, including both single and double blade turbines, as well as the more modern three blade horizontal axis design. The older generation turbines generate kilowatts, and the modern turbines installed generate up to 3 megawatts. A state initiative to upgrade the transmission out of Tehachapi (Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project) began in 2008 and is expected to be completed by 2012. This has opened the door to further regional wind power development and multiple projects are expected to be installed to utilize that capacity.   Tehachapi is also notable for avian issues.  It is the most likely area that California condors will be killed and has the world record setting golden eagle killing wind power plant.   Time out in the North East Kingdom of Vermont.   We are pleased to be joined by Kenn Stransky, the president of the Northeastern Vermont Development Association Board (NVDA).  The NVDA just voted, almost unanimously, for a 3-year moratorium on wind development in the north east kingdom (NEK) area. We will ask Ken about what this means for the NEK now, what prompted the vote and why it received such strong support.

    Turbine Trouble in Paradise

    in Environment

    Wind Wise Radio will visit with folks fighting the scourge of industrial wind in some very special places, talk about the weeks headlines, and take listener calls.
    There is a dangerous trend brewing as even precious unspoiled places with regional or world wide significance are being prospected and proposed for industrial scale wind development.
    For example, this past week in California there was a vote to approve a project on Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands, the Deerfield Wind project in Green Mountain National Forest is being fast tracked by the Feds, the Gallitzin State Forest in Pennsylvania is threatened by IWT.  The country around the Grand Canyon is targeted for industrialization.  On Lana’i and Molokai the storm clouds have gathered.  The forces arrayed against these precious places are numerous, well funded, and well protected.  We have only the truth and our voices.
    Please join us Sunday for a conversation about big wind and the threat to precious places.  We will be talking with leaders on Lana’i, on Molokai, and in Arizona’s Canyon Country who are all standing up to Big Wind’s deep pockets, greedy corporations, hordes of lobbyists, and misguided politicians.

    Replay of Dr. John Constable, Turbine Deterioration

    in Environment

    Dr. John Constable is the Director of the Renewable Energy Foundation (REF) an independent UK charity that publishes data and analysis on the energy sector .   Dr Constable has been working in energy policy since 2004 and is known for his data-grounded view that current policy targets for renewables are infeasible, unaffordable, and almost certainly counterproductive.   We will hear more about the debate surrounding the REF’s study that showed turbine performance deteriorating much more quickly with age than that claimed by the wind industry.     The study was authored by Dr. Gordon Hughes. Dr Gordon Hughes is a Professor of Economics at the University of Edinburgh where he teaches courses in the Economics of Natural Resources and Public Economics. He was a senior adviser on energy and environmental policy at the World Bank until 2001. He has advised governments on the design and implementation of environmental policies and was responsible for some of the World Bank’s most important environmental guidelines.   Naturally the wind industry is not taking this news well… For example, Windpower Monthly printed  ”No big drop in performance as turbines get older” by David Milborrow.   David Milborrow makes money as a technical adviser to the journal WindPower Monthly and to the BWEA and has an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from City University GB.
