Thermodynamics Wins

According to OilPrice, a wind farm in Germany will be dismantled to make room for an expansion of an open-pit lignite coal mine. One wind turbine is already being torn down. The German energy company RWE says that lignite, or brown coal, has been mined from the coalfields for over 100 years.

The company also said that three of its lignite-fired coal power plants that had been on standby would return to the grid. Each plant has a capacity of 300 megawatts.

BTW, wind mills, whether modern turbines or not, are not a source of renewable energy. How does one renew the wind? They are an archaic, intermittent source.
