I’m going off the conservation subdivison topic today.
Wind turbines provide one possible funding source for landowners looking for ways to conserve land that also offer a monetary benefit. And wind energy is important to our energy independence. But wind turbines can be really ugly on a rural landscape.
In the article “Wind turbines are green, but their design blows”, Detroit Free Press travel writer Ellen Creager asks why can’t they make wind turbines more visually pleasing? Why do they have to be so ugly?
Creager says “Wind turbines have all the personality of a radiator fan.” I tend to agree with her, there may be better ways. Read the article.
That being said, I’ll take current wind turbines over a conventional subdivision any day. I think our members at LandChoices would agree. What do you think?
