Inflation Reduction Act, Blade Bolts Fail in Oregon, Unique Vertical Axis Wind Turbine Design

0



PGE’s Biglow Canyon wind farm isn’t aging well. Is it due to poor maintenance or faulty equipment? PGE isn’t convinced that every bolt failure meets the state’s reporting threshold, but a “blade liberation” in January got widespread attention. Will the government step in?

Some complain that the Inflation Reduction Act does little for climate change – but is it enough to be a catalyst? We discuss how it may affect wind, and the planet. And interesting new designs from Norway show floating turbines with contra-rotating blades that could be more powerful and less dangerous to wildlife. Are they really viable?
