    Nice article Hearne. Gold star for A.L. Huber. I can’t wait to go check out the turbine!

    A sunscreen to deflect direct sunlight reduces cooling load, not “heat load.” Not sure what heat load he is referring to. Heat load is usually that heat an occupant or machine adds to a room or building.

    So what do these solar and wind generators yield once you weigh the total cost (not including what you hope to gain from future sales!). For the record, solar and wind cost about 5 to 8 times higher than what it costs to make energy with fossil fuels.

    It’s not just about saving money with fossil fuels. That’s a given. The fact is we are running out of fossil fuels and there are many geopolitical issues – as in war, etc – and being at the mercy of unstable Middle Eastern countries. The costs of new technologies will undoubtedly come down in time as advances occur and production ramps up.

    It’s ugly as hell.

    We are not running out of fossil fuels. There are hundreds of years of supplies right now, and technology for finding new supplies gets better and we can add even more. For “being at the mercy of unstable Middle Eastern countries,” we seem to be able to enjoy pretty cheap gas and oil today.

    Necessity is the mother of invention.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    I think it looks pretty cool right on the highway like it is but really can’t see this huge grey turbine pole popping up all over JO. Maybe Colorado or other states might use it but I can see how it could turn into an eyesore. Right now it’s unique and a bit artsy but more than 1 and it turns a little ugly. Maybe we just have to get used to this like light and electricity poles. Go green!

    Go green? Did you know that we are mired in double-digit unemployment? How does spending 5-8x more on a single KWH of electricity help that along? Be real people – you are not going to help anybody get a job by spinning your wheels on old unproductive technology. This is time to advance technology, not step backward.

    Natural Gas is the short term solution. Wind and solar remain too expensive to be practical for the average consumer. The whole global warming myth got blown up earlier this week.

    Amen to Natural Gas, though I wouldn’t call it a solution when there is no problem. Natural Gas reserves are 5-6x that of oil.
