Regarding the wind turbines to be installed at Byers:
The article has incorrect information in that I believe it means to say the turbines will produce 150,000 KWh and 25,000 KWh of energy (not power) per year. This is probably an overestimate, but we can accept it for the moment.
The combined total 175,000 KWh of electricity per year will be worth about $17,500 per year applying an average commercial price of electricity of $0.10/KWh. This much electricity would be worth about half that if the average wholesale cost is applied.
The $600,000 project cost divided by the annual return of $17,500 (which is an overestimate) produces a payback period of 34 years; which will be many years after the wind turbines are rusting piles on non-functional junk.
The State of Ohio is providing a grant to support this fiasco, and I would bet there are also Federal grants and/or credits involved too. Can someone explain why??
