I calculated that it will take only eleven-thousand years to pay off the four-million dollar loan from electric savings.

I thought they "blocked our view" and were " noisy"

It will be an eyesore for the town. What an embarrassment! There is a time and place for everything but a windmill in the middle of a town is ridiculous.

Did they ever pay the fine for being 3 years late? I didn't think so.

All great supportive comments so far. LOL. First of all, there is only one turbine. It will be used to provide power to the water treatment plant. It remains to be seen if it will be an eyesore or not. Lots of folks think it will bring a lot of interest to our community. I think it's great that Crisfield is the one community on the shore that's actually going to put this concept to the test instead of just saying no to new ideas. There are lots of good things going on in Crisfield. Instead of sitting around making uninformed negative comments, come on down for a visit!!!

What in the world would anyone want to ride down to Crisfield for?

9:11. Here are a few things that my family has ridden down to Crisfield for over the years: Fishing, crabbing, boating, paddling the kayak trails at Janes Island State Park, swimming at Wellington Beach, visiting the small boat harbor to see the crabbing and fishing boats, eating out at a number of small family owned restaurants, attending annual events like the Soft Shell Crab fest, Tawes Clam and Crab bake, Wheels on the Waterfront, Hard Crab Derby, boat docking contests, numerous church and civic organization dinners, tour boats to both Smith and Tangier Island, Christmas Parades etc. yes, Crisfield is a small town and has its share of problems but it is also a proud community and I am proud to support it.

All outdated technology.We installed these models 10 years ago.

Can you swim in the Bay? Is the bacteria still a problem?

12:53. And how did they work out?

How long after installation will one of the drunks in one of the municipally legalized golf carts run into it, since he will be so interested that he won't be able to keep his eyes off it?

No parts? No worries.Like everything else in Crisfield,once its no longer useful or safe to use, it will just sit there rusting out until it falls over.On a lot with a high water table at that.
