it's not just europe where the birdchoppers don't run

Post  Flap Zappa on Wed Jul 11, 2012 8:31 pm

I have been to Gaziantep to day to get the wifes visa sorted and on the way there came across a wind farm on the top of mountains well over 3000 feet high that for some reason were not working
I counted 32 of them and not a single one was turning.
You will have to take my word that they weren't as I did not get any video returning about 6 or 7 hours later they were still not turning.

Maybe it was too hot or too windy for them to operate. I doubt if it was too cold because even in gazientep which is over 3000 feet up it must have been 90F

I must admit they do spoil the scenery, never mind they will be taking them down again soon as there a waste of space

I counted 32 on that hill top, it was over 3000 feet up, none were working and none were working about 7 hours later when we came back.
while fine as a supplementary power source they are not fit for purpose as a primary power source which is what they appear to be touted as.
