i think that this would be a good plan if everything goes well. only concern is how much land it takes.

Great to see something like this starting to take place. Perhaps now some utility bills will now show a trend in rates starting to go down instead of up? After all, there should be no fuel costs in producing energy in a way such as this. One would think after the initial investment, baring routine maintenance, the costs should be minimal. After all, how much can wind cost consumers?

We saw lots of these last fall on a trip out west. We enjoyed seeing them. We didn't think they were ugly at all. They were usually out where there wasn't much else to look at. We are so happy that they are starting to put these in our area. We think this is a very smart move. We must do everything in our power to generate clean energy. Our lives and our country depend on our decisions right now.
