So, no wind turbine was damaged?
I was concerned that the attack on the SA "let's blame renewables" story would suffer embarrassment if it later was revealed that in fact some of the State's turbines were damaged in the storms. But so far, no word on that. As I suggested the other day, it's kind of impressive if pylon toppling storms don't cause turbine damage, isn't it? (Yeah, I know - the pylons may have been far from any turbines. What I would like to see is the electricity authorities putting up a map of where all the damage happened to the grid during the storms - not just from wind, but also lightning.)
