Politicians Out of Touch ! Looking like Fools ? On Jan 17,2013 Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray, U.S. Rep. William Keating and U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas met at Otis ANG base to discuss how well the wind turbine projects were going on at the base.

The Massachusetts Military Reservation (Otis Air Force Base) received and installed its 1.5-MW Fuhrlander turbine in late fall 2009. The turbine has a gear box failure.

The cost of the repairs three years later after the warranty costs over 600 thousand dollars . The turbine was built and finished December 15, 2009

The officials at the base deny the gear box has any problems but they are replacing the gear box. This is an example of the bunco scheme going on in the wind industry. Did someone forget to tell our politicians the truth about the ongoing catastrophic gear box failure in the three years old wind turbine ?
