Airtricity Building US National Security


Are we Irish Complete Gobshites?

Irish firm Airtricity buys $330 million worth of Wind Turbines for installation in Texas. This company are thriving and expanding in the US. They are strengthening the US national security by lessening its dependence on oil.

Why in heavens name are we not using this resource in Ireland? The policy makers are so shortsighted. The ESB is completely blind. We need the wind farm installation now.

Ireland could be 100% wind powered if we had the will to do so. With new battery storage systems coming on stream, it takes away the ESB's lame excuse of power fluctuations.

We are losing jobs and national security to the USA.

I think you're on the right track by pointing at battery technology. It would take a high tech battery farm to stabilise the output of most Irish wind turbines and that's where those serious about renewable energy in Ireland should focus more attention.
