Doesn't seem any different than living near several major highways.

Compare to continuous smoke from a coal fired generator. Wind towers are still clean energy.

Intermittant sources of energy will never be a viable source of green energy. Good for home use not farm factories.

Do you live next to a coal fired generator? They have improved greatly.Do you make your living on a farm and want to take a chance on your crops being burned?

This was not the first loss of hydraulic fluid here, and there is nothing green about this project.
