‘Counting’ is not NextEra’s strength.

The one thing people need to know about a project is How Many Wind Turbines are proposed (pretty basic…). You’d think the company (In this case, FPLE/NextEra) could rattle these numbers off smoothly. Well, they can’t even write them correctly in their huge advertisements and draft proposals. Below are the real numbers, which of course are bigger then the advertised numbers. I guess they are thinking, “What’s the big deal.? ..Give or take 135 massive wind turbines…nobody will notice!”

….So that’s potentially 319 wind turbines up at the Lake for this particular company, not 184.
