There’s the thought that solar will cool off in Japan, and onshore wind might grow. GE is ready with the “2.85-103 wind turbine for Japan.”
While citing the need for more rigorous research, an official Australian review of the current science finds no credible evidence of ill health from wind farms.
With 287 megawatts of solar leading the way, renewables comprised virtually all the new utility-scale generating capacity installed in the United States in January.
Disputing earlier claims, new research shows wind turbine performance declines just 1.6 percent per year, on average – in line with conventional technologies.
