Speaking of making turbines, a plant here in SD just laid off workers because of “uncertainty” in the market. I think they make blades.

Without the tax subsidy (which expires end of CY012 and the House shows no interest in renewing) turbines are completely uneconomic.

So I’m sure orders are zip right now.

There’s a big wind farm going in here in N. Central Indiana that the company is hiring anybody with a pulse to get these things up and running by end of the year, otherwise they don’t get the subsidies.
