870 litres of gear oil in each wind turbine

Bluewater, Ontario
… newly erected turbines are springing leaks all over the place.  7 last count.  My understanding is there is 870 litres of gear oil in each Nacelle.  One of the residents noticed it because a glob of it landed on his arm. I have reports from the Ocotillo Wind Energy Facility, located in Southern California.  A resident surrounded by 112 turbines advised “We estimate that about 70% of the turbines are or have leaked.”  Should you see one, you need to report the spill to the Ministry’s Spills Action toll free number at 1-800-268-6060 along with the Municipality.
