Unproven Technology

Green firm's fatal flaw: 'Blades liable to fly off our turbines' - Scotsman.com News

A SCOTTISH renewable energy company went into receivership with the loss of 55 jobs yesterday as hundreds of wind-turbine owners were warned to shut down the company's machines amid fears that the blades could fly off.
An estimated 500 people in Scotland, mainly farmers, are believed to operate the small wind turbine, manufactured by Ayrshire-based company Proven Energy, which is at the centre of the major safety alert.

Not good news.


The case for windmills appears to be not-Proven.

Not good news, except insofar as it all helps the overwhelmingly negative public perception of windfarms, which in the end will bring about their demise - a consummation devoutly to be wished.
