Drug-runners. Human traffickers. Criminals smuggling one thing or another. The U.S. Navy operates a radar operation near Hampton Roads to try and intercept contraband from central and south America. But the Amazon wind farm in eastern North Carolina might be hurting that operation. Carolina Journal’s Rick Henderson explains what’s up with the Navy’s concerns with the Amazon wind farm.
Take 2 minutes to watch Rick explain, and then read the background. If you’re concerned about busting criminals, you’ll want to read Carolina Journal’s story. Turns out that after a year in service, the Amazon wind farm isn’t meeting its performance projections. Lots of questions about this facility, including why the energy the Amazon wind farm creates doesn’t help North Carolina meet the renewable energy mandate.
