In other wind news, in an article in Reuters, “Clean energy groups in San Diego County are hoping to spark a wind energy rush in a region far better known for its abundant solar power.
Advocates say that California will have to accelerate the use of utility-scale wind power to meet its aggressive renewable portfolio standard, which requires at least 33 percent of the state's electrical generation to come from clean energy by 2020. And many are banking on a future wind energy boom in San Diego County to help it succeed.”

Successful research of stealth turbine for radar-sensitive locations
Radar-friendly wind energy: An estimated 20 gigawatts of worldwide wind energy capacity is blocked by radar interference concerns, Vestas Technology R&D testing validates an efficient solution.
Vestas, the world leader in providing high-tech wind power systems, today announced that it has taken a major step forward in solving a critical wind energy challenge: It has successfully tested a full-scale “stealth” rotor on a turbine, paving the way for wind power plants to be located near many military, airport and other radar systems without interfering in their operations.
The stealth turbine test, which was conducted at a UK customer site with technology partner QinetiQ, is part of an ongoing research collaboration that began in 2006. Preliminary test results, announced today at the International Wind and Radar Forum in Ottawa, Canada, showed that a Vestas V90 turbine with stealth rotor achieved a targeted reduction in radar cross-section of approximately 99 percent, or 20 decibels, compared with standard turbines.
