Too many turbines

Friday, November 19, 2021

Dear Editor,

My old Iowa stomping ground is now awash in wind turbines. These turbines are like highway workers. Only a small portion of the wind turbines are working at any given time. Even though they seldom operate they need almost constant maintenance. Also wind turbine blades were supposed to last at least 20 years but in fact are usually replaced after 10. The blades canít be recycled so they end up dumped in Iowa landfills. Truly Iowa is becoming a windmill landfill.
