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