Wind turbines generating regret; $100,000 turbines to create $1.50 in electricity (savings) monthly

Wind doesn’t always blow like this. Even on the Washington coast.

The $107,516 spires stand immobile more than two months after they were erected and more than a year after the city council approved them.
