Wind is not a viable option.
It's not green by any stretch of the imagination. It's not valueable. When it's very hot, no wind, when it's very cold, no wind. So basically useless when you need it the most.
I was an operator at the largest windmill company in Canada. There's lots of lying going around. It doesn't make any money, it destroys the health of the operators and technicians. I'm not even mentioning that the company has to pay another company to remove the dead bats at one farm. Truckloads every year.
Wind energy is the biggest bullshit story ever pulled on the public.
Most rural municipalities also have bylaws that prevent the deployment of turbines.
There was one setup here. The guys had a small turbine and a basement full of batteries. Always down for repairs. Finally broke down and had power poles run to his house so he could go on the grid. Wasted thousands of dollars.
