Power loss occurs as distance increases. MOre powerloss means higher power costs.Originally posted by: Piano Man
That's a pretty desperate statement since almost of these wind farms are actually on farms away from most, and the farmer who has them gets government grants. And the problem with transmission over a long distance has nothing to do with power, because the power is there. The problem comes with the rate hikes that different power companies would charge for power to be sent through thier lines.Originally posted by: Crimson
You people advocating windmills would be the sames one complaining about them being an eyesore if they were built anywhere NEAR where you lived. Yeah, I can just imagine miles upon miles of massive windmills.. THATS the answer..
The whole "We're killing the planet" thing got old in the 80's and 90's.. let it go..
Ask Kennedy and Kerry about trying to stop wind farm in their backyard.
