Interesting article by East County Magazine on apparent underperformance of Ocotillo Wind and complete opacity of Pattern/SDGE on the subject. Tom

Frustrating for the public to get data from any regulatory agency without doing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. I'm not sure that a FOIA request on power generating data would even be honored, as the power producers would likely claim that such data represent 'business trade secrets'.

I read through those articles Tommy posted and the comments on the FB page. I sympathize with Graham. Seems to me like these people are out there constantly trying to stir up trouble and be a pain in the ass? Would you like it if someone followed you around at work video taping you, interrupting you, doing everything they can to make you look bad, then posting videos of it online? Reminded me of bickering school kids, "he said this, and she said that, I am telling on you, blah, blah blah blah. Did Parke Ewing and Jim Pelley take pictures of every ocitillo that was damaged or destroyed and complain about blowing dust when their own homes, streets, schools, etc were being built in Ocitillo?

If a mega wind farm was being constructed 1/2 mile from my house and I had to look at blinking red lights every night I guarantee I would be a pain in the ass too. Pattern even hassled me (the security patrol vehicle) when I drove through the area with my kids and camper. It seems they think they own the area and now are attacking people!!!!
