Looking for wind power? Not in this wind farm

BY4MJXwCcAAyGvSThis picture recently posted online by Bloomberg’s correspondent in Venezuela Anatoly Kurmanaev is from the La Guajira wind farm in Northwest Venezuela (built as a joint venture with Argentina). It was inspected last April by no other than Nicolás Maduro himself

According to Kurmanaev, locals have told him that since Maduro’s visit no major works have been done in the area, and that not a single wind turbine there is actually working. None of the promised 75,6 MW for the local electric grid are being produced so far.

But hey, at least they’ll give the guy something to tilt at, am I right? #ItsSomething
