    I wonder how much more electricity they're generating in the moments leading up to catastrophic failure compared to regular operations

    IIRC, the procedure is to disengage the gears from the generator because if you don't they catch fire (overloaded by the power generated)?

    That one looks like it got hit by something. Which seems far more likely in a windstorm than self destruction.

    I thought it was just good old fashioned friction that caused the fires (I seem to recall reading something about a clutch being overworked and eventually bursting into flame), but this makes sense too.

    no no they literally spin themselves to death

    they have built-in gearing and breaking systems to stop them getting up to deadly speeds, but sometimes those systems fail

    Also sometimes they catch on fire!



    That's my favorite one.

    All energy production carries inherent risk. It's interesting to me that many of these videos are labelled "wind turbine fails! Environmentally Friendly?!?!"

    Because it's like, yeah they explode sometimes. You know what doesn't happen when they explode? Millions of gallons of toxic waste doesn't get dumped in the ocean.

    Is there an inherent risk of solar farms I can't think of?
    Dams definitely have a risk of collapse and flooding, as well as the damage they cause when creating a reservoir

  • IronKnuckle's GhostIronKnuckle's Ghost Registered User regular
    I seem to recall some arguments against solar farms including intense heat generation (I think saying the panels capture the sun's heat, not that the process produces heat), and, depending on if it's your typical PV panel or one of those reflection deals where the light is bounced onto a central collector, killing birds and insects who fly into the zone.

    I'm fairly sure the latter type of farm is quite rare, and the former's risk really reads more like a low-key anti-green energy argument.

    Anyway let's stick panels on every roof surface in the world.

    Yes, but that gif in particular is CGI. The instagram artist used the exploding turbine posted by Jedoc as reference.

  • bowenbowen How you doin'? Registered User regular
    The type of materials required to make solar are really shitty and unhealthy to be mined and use a lot of, essentially, slave labor I thought?

    So solar PV is "green" in so much that you really just shunt off a lot of the production and pollution to 3rd world countries. This obviously improves with time and technology.

    It's more that you need a piss ton of silica which they mine out of deserts in China in a manner not particularly friendly to the local wildlife.

    It is in fact a dramatically lower water cost, GHG equivalent cost, local pollution cost etc than coal oil or gas, but it's not 0.

    they don't explode, if the materials used could just rip themselves apart it would be wildly dangerous

    the gif jedoc posted happened as a result of a collision
