    This letter to a Hartford Courant reporter will be of interest to FairWindCt as it may help decide the Colebrook wind farm project.

    Dear Janice:
    I read your coverage of the Colebrook wind project and wish to correct your usage of the terms power and energy, and also correct some of the numbers your article quotes.

    Please do recognize in your writings the meaning of the terms energy and power and apply them as we had been taught in junior physics classes. Using the terms correctly, you will spare us the annoyance of trying to figure out what you mean when you write that “10,000 kilowatts is enough energy …..” Energy is not measured in kW (or any other multiple of the watt) a reporter of your caliber should know.

    Similarly, your “… to power about 10,000 homes for one year” is a nonsense because your 10,000 kW can power the homes for one year as much as for a second or eternity. Power is energy per time – the time is built in already.

    Please be clearer in your writings by stating simply, correctly and briefly, that a 10,000 kW can power 10,000 homes (forget the “for one year”). From this most people can see “one kilowatt per home.” It would further help the reader if you’d clarify that the 1 kW refers not to a home as we know it but only to the part that relies on electricity such as for lights, appliances, etc. An all-electric house would be using 10 times more when heating the house and supplying hot water is included. Thus your 10,000 homes shrink to 1000 real homes. And that is still not the whole picture.

    In your writings, I see comparisons based on the name-plate ratings. But that number is applicable only if the wind mill or a solar plant operates at its rated output for 24/7. Obviously, wind does not blow all the time and sun does not shine at night. The “number of homes” you quote is three to five times too high for wind and up to ten times too high with solar panels or mirrors. In other words, the cited 9.8 MW will not be sufficient to power 10,000 homes, not even the above 1000 but only 200 in the not particularly wind-favored Connecticut. With solar panels, it would be only 100 houses.

    Lastly, the 24 million dollars may buy the 9.8 MW rated capacity but it actually buys only 2 MW actual output – the likely yield averaged over the mills’ useful life in Connecticut. The capital outlay is then 10 $/W. That is 7 times higher than for nuclear power plants (1.4 $/W), twenty five times higher than for gas-fired stations (0.4 $/W), etc.

    Please, report the whole picture. For more on the subject, see the attachment.
