The Future?

When the cost of repair is excessive.
  I need serious maintenance!!

If this is the future for onshore wind-farms how will the Of-shore wind-farms survive? When the cost outweighs the value then the wind-turbine becomes so much scrap, however if the generation end is useable connect it to a Water Turbine or even a very old Water Wheel that has been refurbished. Is this the Green carbon free dream of the eco warriors!
