Typical scene in my part of the world. The wind always blows around here.
Many of the windmills share the same fields as oil pump jacks. Drilling for new wells has slowed down a lot. Many pumps are idle. There is enough oil in storage at this time and prices for oil have fallen. Low Demand for wind energy sometimes also idles windmills.Good for renewable energy production
Lots of nature purists over here in Norway, a stance which arguably may be in conflict with nature preservation in the long run, since there’s heavy opposition toward windmills. I get both sides of the argument, but if we are to reduce energy consumption from no renewable/fossil sources, I think the purists have to eat a few camels. Or windmills.
If I’m not mistaken, Oklahoma was/is also an oil state though?
