Windpower For Humboldt
I was taken aback by the photo accompanying this article in the Eureka Reporter about the proposals to expand the power plant out in Fairhaven with wind turbines. I do look across the bay on occasion and never noticed wind turbines out there. Then, after reading more closely I noticed they said it was a photo illustration so I guess they must have added the windmills to the photo to show what the're plan would look like, if realized.
That's a neat idea. I'm all for it. I wonder if any of the local enviros will oppose the project as those windmills have a reputation for killing any birds that fly into them?
While they're at it out there, maybe someone will take down that ugly shell of the old mill right across the bay from the Del Norte Street Pier? What an eyesore that is.
