The difficulty not being discussed in wind energy as often as it should be is the provision of support for blades in the event of blade failures. As the need for some sort of answer to be made available to forestall climate change becomes better understood, wind turbines must be relied on to be engineered well.
The potential for exceptionally high winds in the Midwest of the United States damaging blades is a question that still seems to be open. To provide additional infrastructure or cables for blade rotors to prevent blades from falling to the ground would be something that could be important.
It is not beyond the abilities of many in the readership of the Tehachapi News to suggest ideas that are still in need of being considered. We are here in one of the global focal points for the development of this new technology!.
