A Tale of Two Wind Facilities — Ontario, Canada and Ocotillo, California

Last summer (2012) Quixotes did a video of the inefficiency of wind energy in Ontario using the 160 turbine facility at Melanchton as an example.

A fellow wind group in Ocotillo (pronounced Okoteeyo) California has made some strikingly similar videos using the 112 wind turbines that currently surround their tiny town in the desert.

The interesting part is that as you watch the videos, you’ll notice that the turbines in Ontario aren’t turning because the wind is apparently “too” strong.  While in Ocotillo, the winds aren’t strong enough.  This perfectly demonstrates how unreliable wind power is and why grid operators refer to it as a ‘nuisance power’.

After watching all of these videos, how can taxpayers NOT be outraged at the obscene amounts of money being wasted on this useless form of energy?
