We support all forms of domestic, alternative energy production because they are good for communities, states and the nation. Alternative energy supports energy independence by reducing dependence on foreign sources, Wind energy systems have low operating expenses because they have no fuel costs. Electricity generated from wind is a clean solution and this April 2011, Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy 2-page pamphlet offers 10 primary benefits of wind energy as an alternative to conventional energy production. It includes point-by-point discussion and references. Topics include “Wind energy as cost competitive with other fuel sources”, “Wind energy creates jobs”, and “Wind energy is an inexhaustible renewable energy source”.
Elsewhere throughout our site we will discuss “small wind” solutions for homes, structures, schools, and other small scale applications.
