I doubt that the company would build the wind generators on the hill above VC. I have not seen any of the plans for this project, but initially I would have to say YES, green energy is going to be the foundation in Nevada since the gaming industry bubble has burst (actually had a slow leak since the first Indian Casino opened years ago).

I support the concept of green energy and still think it is a knee jerk reaction to oppose any such projects.

Nevada has 85% of the state being federally owned land and I am sure that in much of this viable wind 'farms' could be built with little or no impact on the area, with transmission lines connecting to the power gird and supplying 'Green Energy' to the needs of our state and country.
