Wind electricity provides an opportunity to make a positive environmental change without a capital investment. These changes will positively impact community, society and the environment for present and future generations.
The amount of electricity we use each month will be bought from wind sources, by the local distribution company.
The amount purchased from coal and nuclear sources will be reduced by that same amount.
