Re-peat

“Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) has proposed a 39-turbine development at Strathy South in Sutherland, which would only operate for a maximum of 25 years … [and yet] could take up to 24.8 years to ‘pay back’ the carbon impacts of its construction … [because it] would be situated on a peatland site.” (http://www.rspb.org.uk/media/releases/398890-sse-windfarm-at-strathy-south-could-take-over-20-years-to-become-carbon-neutral)

Renewable — capable of being renewed, on a 25 year contract, without perceivable benefit.
