How about more wind turbines and not pollution. How about EP Electric thinking about the future and not just about short term profits. Clean up your mess and also begin to provide clean electricity. Three wind turbines is not even a good start, just propaganda. No more dirty air - no more Asarco - no more dirty EP Electric tricks. Time to think about the people first and clean up your act.

Solar and wind solutions have been around for AGES. And now the technology is available for a hell of a lot cheaper than ever before. I have the ability to purchase about 5kw of solar and another 7kw of wind turbines for personal use installed at my home for about $15k. If I can do it, then what is to stop El Paso Electric? Shareholders, Special interests, Gas company contracts and high-level perks for using combustibles and non-renewables.
