they look like a disaster up there, a nice uninterrupted mountain range now reminds me of a mini golf course.
what is the utility of these really, i'd love to know in hard numbers what these are putting to the grid.
I was indifferent about them passing by in searsbrug, i hope they fall down

im generally not a busy body, but you really cant escape the sight of them from north adams proper, they are garish in my opinion, and dilute one of the few defining characteriscs of our area.
i can't be the only one who feels this way.

What is uglier than telephone poles, wires, transformers and hacked up trees to accommodate them? We've lived with these eyesores for years and don't even notice them now. Make a point of noticing them. You might think the windmills look good by comparison.

Correct. They remain still unless toppled by storms or vor ehicles crashing into them. Then they cause fires, electrocutions and power outages. They destroy the aesthetics of neighborhoods where people actually live.

I am in awe of windmillls and any other alternative energy source. Go to Stamford to see those windmills. They overlook the valley. We won't complain when our electric bills go down. Windmills and solar collectors are our future....get used to them.
One more thing, drive up rt 43 towards Jiminy and you will see 10 more windmills.

Stop that! I'm with the pro- windmill people. Ya know, people don't realize the beauty of the area unless it changes. It changed. Windmills are here to stay.

I'm sure you one of those who is against fracking, nuke's, solar and forgein oil, all while you are driving around in your BMW with a Change bumper sticker, living in a house that could house a third world nation and bringing your resuable cloth bag to the supermarket because you do your part to help the environment.

You don't know what you are talking about. The windmills are subsidized by tax money and are allowed to sell power back into the grid at a higher rate than other generators.We could be getting clean low cost power from our neighbors at Hydro Quebec but the windmill craze seems to over shadow that,
You raise a different issue than how they look.
