Sioux Falls landfill tightens rules after Iowa dumps dozens of wind turbine blades

This year, 101 turbine blades have been trucked to the city dump. But with each one spanning 120 feet long, that's caused officials with the landfill and the Sioux Falls Public Works Department to study the long-term effect that type of refuse could have on the dump.

The out-of-region rate is $64 a ton, and a typical blade weighs between 14 and 19 tons.

in a word NO!! and hell no. There are big problems with inefficent heavily subsidized wind power and solar for that matter. In our area we have some of most productive prairie soils in the world.  And guess where these monstrosities with hundreds of tons of concrete anchors are located...yes right thru these areas, never to grow decent crops again....ever.

I have no doubt that it will, eventually.   But we are a long way from the needed technology.   I think right now,  storage is the biggest of a long list of problems.
