Know Your NEXUS: Pipeline Progress

Local Michigan energy companies are continuing to diversify our all-of-the-above energy mix. As coal-fired plants continue to close their doors, Michigan and our Midwestern neighbors are capitalizing on innovative ways to prevent a potential energy deficit. Natural gas is an affordable, reliable and cleaner way to provide the energy our state needs to operate. How are we harnessing the power of natural gas? The NEXUS pipeline is playing a big role!

Myth: Wind turbines are too loud

FACT Check: People are often concerned that wind turbines will disturb the peace in their communities, but modern wind turbines are pretty quiet.

Then why are more communities saying no?

Key word here.. "WIND"

Looks awesome to me

Charlie Goodwin you need to do a little more research on the toxicity of disposing of the composite blades. Currently the dumping of these in third world countries is a more viable alternative to the expensive and hazardous methods of incineration here. Permanent implanted massive concrete foundations may contaminate groundwater. These are not as free, clean and green as you have been lead to believe. China and the Congo are premiere among the places worldwide that are generating ecologically disastrous impacts to manufacture these short lived turbines. The maintenance agreements from the manufacturers are for the ten year life cycle. Don't bank on getting thirty years out of these, After maybe a decade or so, we'll have a coast to coast disaster on a colossal scale. Write that down.

One of the good things is, when you have to decommission, no waste. Nothing to store. Compare to coal, nuke, and oil spills. Even frack gas is waste filled when they inject frack fluids. Just think the crop you’d have Curt. Fresh bird 3 times a month.

They only last so long, kill many birds!!!

Have you ever told people that wind turbines aren't just as loud as a refrigerator. They can be 8 TIMES LOUDER than a refrigerator when Leq is used instead of Lmax? Send those people to me------------and I'll explain.

OW MANY EAGLES AND HAWKS AND BIRDS ARE KILLED
