HOT AIR WIND PROJECT  also see Aztec wind project further down page

They are planning two more wind projects direct EAST and SOUTHEAST of Chevelon Canyon starting off with request for SUP for MET towers. Chevelon Ranch, Acres, Retreat will be surrounded. Every direction you look you will see these monstrocities that keep ruining landscapes everywhere and are net energy losses. Pattern Energy HOT AIR WIND is the first one here with 5 meterological towers to be installed. Projects totaling another 64 SQUARE MILES OF LAND COVERED IN WIND TURBINES. That combined with Chevelon Butte Wind project at 49 square miles brings it to 113 square miles covered in turbines. Get an idea of how this looks here

The wind is not even best in that area for wind plantations

here's an even better map

and as we saw in Texas recently from their cold snap the removing of reliable coal fired power plants to replace with these intermittent chaotic energy power plants that tower into the sky and have a dizzying spin when they are working creates a less stable grid system

Proposed Hashknife Wind Energy Project in the works

The Navajo County Board of Supervisors granted approval last week for the installation of three meteorological (met) measurement towers on property owned by Aztec Land and Cattle Company, located 17 miles southwest of Joseph City.

The met towers will gather the wind speed, wind direction and other meteorological data in the Holbrook area for a possible wind energy project, which would be called the Hashknife Wind Energy Project.

The installation, led through Aztec’s partnership with Chicago-based clean-energy developer Invenergy, marks a step toward what could potentially be Navajo County’s second utility-scale wind farm, the first being the Dry Lake Wind Power Project located between Holbrook and Heber.

The current phase of the Dry Lake Wind Power Project is estimated to eliminate 126,000 tons of carbon dioxide, and save 51,534,000 gallons of water annually. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, each 1,000 megawatts of wind power capacity installed in Arizona will save 818 million gallons of water per year and eliminate two million tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

Navajo County Planning and Zoning Department planning technician Peggy Saunders said that the approved permits were obtained for a five-year period in order to evaluate the immediate trends and wind characteristics across the Holbrook region throughout the four seasons.

“The project is in its preliminary phase. The long-term goal is for Aztec to determine the feasibility of wind energy development in this part of Navajo County,” she explained.

My comment: That's 345 tons each day. That is an insane impossible estimate. The atmosphere and climate handle carbon dioxide by itself with precipitation and convection moving it around to interact with other particles of matter. Carbon dioxide also breaks apart into gee, guess what, carbon and oxygen. Carbon is recycled into the earth, used by plants, etcetera, it's an abundant mineral and building block to all life. Oxygen is used by all living things including insects which are food for birds. Cycle of life. Adding carbon and oxygen to the air is like opening up a soda pop or bubbling sparkling water, does nothing to harm anything. Does not form blankets of anything. There is about 1 particle of carbon to 7,499 other parts of air. That does not form blankets. The very foundation for installing these wasteful systems is quicksand. The planet is not overheating. Climate acts as it has for thousands of years. There is no threat to our existence if we don't install these, actually, there's more threat to our existence if we do as they guarantee more grid problems the more these are installed and they provide fewer jobs and guarantee increases in rates and wasted energy. I also question their claim of saving millions of gallons of water every year, save it from what? Water is recycled.
