Bad idea. 30 years from now they will be an environmental disaster as they break down and fall into the sea. Not gonna happen? Drive from LA to Palm Springs and count the failing, broken windmills. It’s a safe bet that salvage is not included in the cost of free wind energy.
Because repairs are also not included,
Could you imagine being on a 250Ft lift in the ocean working on them as they go by
see what the Netherlands have done. They have removed ALL the windmills as the power was 37% higher and no one could afford the green power hoax.
I don’t see how this could be a net gain even in the long run. In fact, it gets worse in the long run. Cost of service on these monsters would be significant. Guess who gets to pay for that.
However, with those things creating 24\7 chum, the fishing around there would be pretty good I’ll bet. Those blades would slaughter the sea birds by the 10’s of thousands.
. . . will Californians, Oregonians, and Washingtonians support “wind mill farms” off the coasts in SoCal, Big Sur, Mendocino up pass Coos Bay, and those Pacific Northwest shorelines . . . ???
NO.. If trump had proposed that, they would be having street threatrics daily defending the sacred coasts.. See.. its a scam they use until they use it themselves.
