Tilting at Windmills on the New TZB

Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner says windmills should be added to plans for a new Tappan Zee Bridge. Feiner made the suggestion at a Las Vegas conference on alternative energy this week.

Feiner wrote the following on his blog earlier this week, following up comments made by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg at the same conference.

I am contacting the TZ Bridge Environmental Review Team, Governor Paterson, members of the NYS Legislature and will be encouraging them to follow up on Mayor Bloomberg’s suggestion that windmills be placed on NYC bridges and skyscrapers.

This is a perfect time to study the feasibility of placing a windmill on the TZ bridge. NYS is currently studying various options for the bridge–either major rehabilition or a new bridge. If construction of the windmill takes place at the same time as construction or rehabilitation of the TZ bridge there will be little inconvenience to motorists. Placing a windmill on top of the bridge will send a constant message to the public–how important it is for our nation to become more energy efficient.
