The one in the photo below "blends in" with the lightposts along the highway in Rhode Island. What looks like a third light post in the distance is actually spinning and generating energy. If these can be built in major cities, why are they being opposed in other parts of the country? As for the "eyesore" issue, I saw numerous cell phone towers that were by far less attractive.
I believe that we deserve to have clean energy and should be less dependent on foreign suppliers, whether it be genereated from wind or the sun. I'm keeping the faith that these will become a common sight instead of a novelty.
