Wind farm’s towers could be visually toned down

Depending upon how many of these towers are erected, this could look like an appendix scar on the side of the mountain.

Maui is one of the most beautiful places in the world. While I am cognizant of the fact Maui must utilize a renewable energy source, I am sitting here looking at the white wind towers being erected on the side of the West Maui Mountains.

Depending upon how many of these towers are erected, this could look like an appendix scar on the side of the mountain.

It is customary for the petroleum industry, a Mainland energy source, to paint tank farms, flow lines, wellheads, separators, etc., either camouflage or colors associated with the nearby flora or background scenery allowing them to be functional as well as out of sight.

I would only hope this technique would be utilized on this wind farm project to keep our island beautiful.
