So 133 sq miles of wind farms will power how many homes over what distance? Yeah...not enough.

When will we stop dumping money into this crap and lining the pockets of the Al G wannabes.

How about what Huck said? Coal, Uranium, oil drilling off our coast?

Time for the majority to take control back from the idiotic left leaning pot smoking hippies.

A wind farm of this size could easily produce 7000 megawatts of power a year, but it does depend on the number of turbines. The average home uses 10,000 kilowats per year. So that means one wind farm of this size could power around 7000 homes-with no toxic waste, no air polution, no strip mining, no offshore oil leaks. Why is this bad?

You are not quite ready to accept anything that remotely has truth to it. Pray your next hot-flash won't burn you up.
