“Windmills have fascinated us for centuries and will continue to do so. Like campfires or falling water, they’re mesmerizing; indeed, entrancing.”

Paul Gipe, Wind Power for Home, Farm, & Business

Some Concerns about Wind(that can be addressed with proper information)
  • Visual / Aesthetic
  • Property Values
  • Noise
  • Birds
  • Safety
  • Are benefits real?

Are the benefits real?
  • Back up Power?
    • Turbines do not require any new back up generation or spinning reserves.
  • Emission reductions?
    • Wind energy is accepted on the grid before any other source when it is available, offsetting the need for more polluting sources. Each MWh of wind is one less MWh of electricity from a fossil fuel plant
  • Economics?
    • Wind provides long-term price stability and is competitive with today’s energy costs. Economic benefit is realized by whoever buys (and sells) the power.
