Windmills

Postby Feriluce » Sat Apr 14, 2007 5:42 pm

I'm sure there's already a thread, but searching for "windmills" in a hardcore forum was pretty fruitless. :lol:

Anyway, got this in the mail today:

Maybe they're pissed off farmers? But I think the windmills are a good way of generating power without emmisions or unrenewable resources. And personally, wouldn't mind living in a "dumping ground for wind turbines".

At least it's close to a city. Who cares about palmerston north? As long as they keep out of central otago.

So, why keep them out of central Otago? And is it ok to have them in Southland? If so, why?

It''s pretty sweet biking to the top of that hill with the windmills on.

I used to work directly under the Brooklands one. I wouldn't mind having a pile of them in my back yard. It's like living in the future!!

'Cos he's all for them because he read that they were good somewhere but also totally against them being where he can see them because he read somewhere else that was also bad and it would lower the property prices or something.

Or some such half arsed talkback radio style bollocks.

oh right. of course, completely inefficient, makes sense, id had some halfbaked idea that the companys that had invested millions in hydroecletric schemes didnt want to lose their income to windelectric power.

really really inefficient, thats right, it would be wouldnt it, an electric generator that is powered by the wind.. of course that wouldnt work, everyone knows that the wind cant turn a windmill, preposterous idea, don quixote had it right i say, cant stand in the way of progress, not unless its quite the wrong sort of progress, progress that doesnt make lots of money.

jolly good im glad we had thsi discussion, you should make sure you appoint yourself the queen of internet stuff and saying things guy.

fuck you're an idiot.


any who, anti wind turbine people fuck me off. They look a damn sight better than a coal mine, in fact I actually quite like the look of them. I really doubt they are going to devalue property - especially by 30%, most people I've talked to think they are ace.


and yeah pretty much what wax said.

Fuck yeah. Innefficient power creation with the only pollution being visual is far better than a good efficient coal station.

all the coal dug out of huntly is shipped to japan, who tip it into the ocean, we buy coal from australia and burn it in huntly

so efficient.

much more efficent than a turbine that requires no further input from man to produce energy.

cept lube... lots of lube (for the maintenance guy who has to wait between repairs jobs)


I think a coal plant is a larger visual, aural, and air/water/soil pollutant than a couple of thousand windmills.

Because in central otago they want to put them in all the least developed places. They would look fucking stupid around the old dunstan road. Why put them somewhere like that, which still retains a lot of it's heritage value (being the least modified of the old goldfield sites) as opposed to putting them in an area which is already fairly developed and close to where the demand is?

Ok to have them in southland? I live in southland, I'm not really oppsed to white hill (although the turbines up there are nothing compared to what they want to do in central). People I know who farm below white hill were told that the windfarm would render their land value-less if they ever wanted to subdivide, they are adamant they don't so that's not really an issue.

White hill is fucking loud though...

As far as maintenance on windfarms, white hill is apparently more or less a one man operation.

I would rather they were close and viewable from centres of population than cluttering up much more attractive landscapes. Transmission can be a bit of a problem also...

on this issue people and their petty selfish ideas should be thoroughly ignored, they can have a moan about being trampled by the gig guy but ultimately this is something that benefits everyone so some cunts worried about the noise or the view can get fucked.

an old gold field? who gives a toss? Isn't it better to have a mean as renewable energy source than some old ecological fuck up?

meh build them there and in the cities. windmills everywhere I say.


I personally haven't been up to the ones in manawatu, but friends that have say that you can have a conversation under the turbines without raising your voice. And the noise they do make is more of a calm ocean like noise, ie more in tune with nature than most modern technology.

I'm with Pert. I think they actually look quite interesting. And yes, you can chat under them without raising your voice.

They're going to lower property values by 30%? SWEET. I was thinking of buying a house.

goldfields are history, they wont be destroyed for windmills in any case it was a compleytely spurious argument.

The point was don't you need like 100,000 of them to power just a small town. I know they fucking work you deadbeat fuckup, I just also know they don't work very well.
