Windmills Are Awesome, Unless You Need Electricity

Apparently NV Energy’s wind rebate program is going really well. Because it doesn’t require the production of any actual, you know, energy.

Hey, accountability is for suckers.

My favorite part of AD’s great story:

A more catastrophic failure occurred on a farm in rural Nevada, when a large turbine spun apart only days after it was installed. No one was injured, largely because it was in a remote locale.

“It was very spectacular,” said Matt Newberry, who runs NV Energy’s wind program. “It was only up for a matter of days. We’re relieved we haven’t had any more of those.”

I bet.

Decapitation lawsuit, anyone?
