I guess I was thinking of ranchers with spare land they weren’t using leasing on a fairly small scale as supplemental income,
The problem with windfarming is that it really is not efficient on a small scale. I forget the actual separation numbers, but a set of 100 windmills, (which is about the minimum practical), makes for a site five to ten miles, (or more), across.
A friend of mine is currently driving a concrete truck on a windfarm site in Nebraska. He says that the absolute worst thing about the job, (other htan the insane hours, but he’s making good cash out of it as compensation), is that the speed limit on the job site is 20mph, and you get fired for speeding. He informed me that it could be an hour or more to get from the mixer to the pad.
I debated looking up Beaumont, but I suspect there are multiples.
I don’t even know that you would get a hit on “Beaumont wind farm”. I’ll have to try it after my next restart. I’m in Kansas, outside Wichita.]]>
