The wind farm in Cherokee County Glaciers Edge Wind Project possibly was damaged by ice possibly 96 blades.

It was stated,

"I hear it might cost perhaps $20 million to repair and replace the turbine blades."

"Just the expense of leasing or renting a massive Manitowoc or Liebherr top-off crane can cost upwards of $80,000 to $100,000 per month, plus operator and crew."

I can't help but always think how the monies we spend on these could house all homeless forever.

This is another $20 million that if it were buying outright could be used for 200 homes at $100,000 each.
