The red flashing lights on top of wind mills keep and draw power from the grid.
They use nuclear power, natural gas, coal, and whatever energy keeps the grid
full of the power we need reliably to keep them lit.
Wind energy is not stored in batteries and for safety reasons the FAA requires
red flashing lights on the tops of these wind turbines.
They have destroyed the night time view scape from Desert Hot Springs looking toward Palm Springs
and in many other communities where wind turbines have been erected.

Some people prefer this landscape below which is free of windmills.
If we really need to save energy make cities start turning off their excessive street lighting!
wind energy also draws power from the grid when it makes the blades spin during no wind periods in order to keep them from freezing up!
