You have to look beyond the fact that some companies are
interested in doing it.  Only by looking at the total picture,
which usually includes heavy govt subsidies, does the true
picture emerge.  If the govt paid $00 to dig a hole and fill
it back in, you'd have companies in line to do that too.
Doesn't mean that it makes economic sense.

Per trader4@optonline.net:

I am 100% in agreement with that.

Don't know that TK ever complained about the looks, but
I'm not buying objecting on looks either.

If there is technology that can stand up to the storms and
salt corrosion, I can't imagine what it is.  I see it being
done, but according to the article, the Dutch are complaining
about maintenance costs.  Makes sense to me.

Wind wise, a great place to put a windmill.
Cost wise, still not buying it.
