Wind Farm Predictions
Back when I first started this blog about three years ago I did the the 2011-2012 Thumb Wind Survey. I predicted a total of 466 turbines in the thumb by 2017.
Today (October 10, 2013) the Huron Daily Tribune reported that ” “By sometime next year, we should have 328 wind turbines in Huron County because of what has been approved and what is under construction, Ninety-eight turbines are currently under construction.”
Needless-to-say this is well beyond our expectation in 2011 of the projected turbines built and in place by 2017. Thumbwind.com will be consolidating its tracking of projects during the winter and projecting a 2014-2020 projection by January 2014.
