  • Wind turbines and property values

    windvalue A recent study has found that wind turbines normally don’t affect the value of the properties in the areas where the turbines are located or those close to them except for some isolated cases. This finding negates the universal notion being propagated by critics of wind turbines. The study which was published in the Canadian Journal of Agricultural Economics was centered on the Melancthon Township and its surrounding areas. One of the largest and oldest wind farm in Canada can be found in this township.  It was conducted by researchers from the University of Guelph who analyzed the sale of over 7,000 farms and homes in the Melancthon Township from 2002 to 2010, many of which were sold more than once during the period of the study.  T...

  • Balloon Lifted Wind Turbines

    13588701465_34618f90f7 The new technology being developed by Altaeros Energies can only be called floating wind turbines. This is a balloon that picks up a wind turbine to deliver power where it is needed. Altaeros is headed by Ben Glass, its CEO and an inventor and the guy who conceptualized the possibilities of an airship technology to bear aloft a wind turbine. Majority of wind turbine producers are attempting to manufacture towering turbines to harness the power of the wind above 150 meters (500 feet) or more. Altaeros, however, has gone much higher with the BAT or its ingenuous Buoyant Airborne Turbine. The BAT can attain a height of 600 meters or 2,000 feet. At this elevation, wind is stronger and faster, thus the BAT can produce electricity twice as ...

  • PTC Extension Advanced by Obama

    1572343146_48191281e2 President Barack Obama repeated his call for the permanent extension of the production tax credit (PTC) of $0.023 per kWh and the investment tax credit (ITC) of 30% as a component of the 2016 budget totaling $4 billion. This is not the first time that Obama has advocated that the tax credits be made permanent, but so far he has not succeeded in persuading Congress to cooperate. Very recently, all that the law makers can manage was an extension for one-year to end in 2014. The permanent extension of the tax credits has been a consistent element of President Obama’s budget proposal.   The Wind Energy Association’s senior vice president of government and public affairs, Rob Gramlich, said that in releasing the budget proposal, ...

  • Offshore Wind Farms Draw Power from Grid to Operate in Subzero Temperatures

    13258748675_ca6c1a3a20 It has been confirmed by energy firms that there are times when wind turbines require electricity from grids. This however is not unique to wind farms since all power stations do not only generate power but also use them. In the case of offshore wind farms, they need electricity from the National Grid for their continuous spinning and also to prevent them from icing when the temperature is at below zero. To prevent ice from forming, the turbines have to idle at a slow pace when the temperature drops in calm condition. The blades also need to idle to drive the hydraulic systems responsible for turning the blades into the wind. Detractors of wind farms said that this is another reason why wind farms are expensive and difficult to...
