Re: "eco" tugboat

Those "windmill farms" are an economic swindle. As simply as that. Governments want so called "green energy" - at a huge cost. No problem. With those windmill farms they are able to sell to the general public "green energy" which is a top swindle item because of the fact that the maintenance of the windmills cost considerably more than the revenue.

That is odd coming from you MacG. Wasn't your country the one that pioneered wind energy? My last recollection of the industry was $0.02 cheaper per Kwh than coal fired generation. Maybe I need to recheck, give me some time.

Re: "eco" tugboat

That' s the swindle. Never mind if your bill is 0,02 ct cheaper, it is what you pay on extra taxes to allow you the 0.0,2 cts rebate.

Ok, we have to look for other energy sources, That is sure. Coal fire installations are absolutely the worst issue. Nonetheless they are still in operation and still build. The windfarms are a screen, just like in the USA. They do not add a significant percentage to the general supply of energy - it is just an artificial screen.

Re: "eco" tugboat

Well the mob that pays my wages think there is money to be made in windfarms, they have ordered two of these jobbies....
