Aftermath: What Happens to Wind Farms When They Die?

From I Aloha Molokai

This film shows what happens to wind turbines when they died after 20 years on Hawaii Island. Needless to say, residents of both Molokai and Lanai do not want this apocalyptic scene to occur on their islands.

This is a continuing a modern day David vs.Goliath story of a little island trying to fight big government and big corporations from ruining our lifestyle with very inefficient big money technology to power Oahu.

PF Bentley filmed & edited this film for us, I Aloha Molokai, a group on the island of Molokai in Hawaii, that opposes the installation of wind turbines on Molokai and undersea cable from Molokai to send power to Oahu.

It should be noted that there is NO benefit to Molokai. After ruining our ‘aina (land), the resulting little power all goes to Oahu. None of it goes for Molokai.

This is an ongoing and growing issue for Molokai and something residents are very opposed to. In two recent polls over 95% of the population do not want wind turbines on the island.

While other islands in state have been overdeveloped, Molokai is the last truly Hawaiian island in people, culture and lifestyle.

This is also a very personal project for PF. He lives on Molokai and specially the West Molokai where these ninety 420 foot wind turbines are planned to be built.
