Also a pending application for the kitchen creek area? Say it ain't so. This is getting out of control. I don't know if anyone else has experienced this but everytime i see a wind turbine it throws my equlibrium off and I get motion sickness.. I can't imagine living next to 150 of them!

I read that also. upset
Crazy. Between Ocotillo, Tule and Kitchen Creek bats, eagles, hawks etc. don't stand a chance.

Projects such as these are simply an outdated paradigm with a new "green" face.
They require huge swaths of land that can be obtained cheaply along with massive infrastructure i.e. Sunrise Powerlink to pipe the power to the cities.
It is a highly inefficient process in addition to being devastating to the environment.


I read this quote somewhere that I like
To call them "wind farms" attempts to put a pastoral face on a decidedly industrial entity.

You know it's like when you are shopping for something new (car, computer, phone, whatever) and all of a sudden you start noticing all the other people who have the same thing you are looking at purchasing and you never really noticed before until now that you are thinking of buying one...now that you are aware of the wind turbines being built you start noticing they are being built EVERYWHERE. If you cherish your back country invest a little time in trying to help fight some of these projects or at a minimum try and educate yourself a bit more about the technology and it's impact on our society and environment.

There are so many wind projects planned for the east county it is sickening, Ocotillo is just one of them.

Here are a few links to get started with
