Setbacks protect us from burning chunks of fiberglass? Nope.

A wind turbine near Dalry and Ardrossan in North Ayrshire caught fire during Scotland’s extreme weather on Dec 8th 2011.

OK- so how far are those huge burning chunks of fiberglass flying? Further than 550m.  We have turbines placed less than topple distance from roads–  proposed to line the 402 highway— our setbacks do not take these types of disatsers into consideration.
