First Wind Turbine Is Installed At The Wind Farm In Penonome

What a great deal!!! 450 million dollars (the official figure, you know), for 100 families, with 75 per cent of its output in only 6 months of the year!!! This is an important milestone for the cronies and insiders that sold this Rube Goldberg to the Government, and ultimately to the Panamanian people. The actual useable energy from these bird killers is less than 20% of what is given. When the wind blows, it produces, but when the wind stops, it produces grid instability because the power has to be made up instantly, which is difficult unless the other power sources are gas turbines or diesel engines running at less than optimal load. It will take 70 years at least before any break even point is reached, in terms of paying down the cost, and the amount of total pollution, incl. CO2 is evened out.

Watch your electric bill in the next couple of years go up faster than inflation due to these, natural gas gen. plants, solar power.
