Why Wind Mills cost so much...

If you ever wondered why we don't use more wind power in this country, examine the image carefully. Windmills require plenty of land. Every windmill needs a road to service it. A series of wires must connect the windmill to the grid. Each of these items are capital expenditures. The fuel for the windmill is free, but the initial costs are so large that it takes quite a longtime to recover them.
