Will Tybee residents hate them as much as Teddy Kennedy hates them?
The wind proved a recreational godsend. Could it also prove a commercial success?
Georgia Tech researchers, who recently completed a study on wind energy off Tybee and Jekyll islands, think so. Southern Co., which commissioned the report, will further study whether a wind farm could generate enough electricity to be financially feasible.
Environmentalists and a smattering of Georgia tourists gushed about the possibility of a nonpolluting renewable energy source —- even if the horizon is dotted with Statue of Liberty-sized turbines.
Yeah, I suspect this will not go over too well with Tybee’s residents or the sea gulls.
