Wind Energy

As we drove around the country last year, we saw a lot of wind farms. As we now drive around our local countryside, we see wind farms where there weren't any just a year ago.

According to the American Wind Energy Association, a new proposed wind farm near Pampa, Texas would be the largest in the world.

Another company has applied to the Bureau of Land Management for permission to build 1000 wind turbines south of Rawlins, Wyoming.

As the price of oil continues to rise, more and more people are looking for other sources of energy. With Congress thinking about subsidies for the installation of alternative energy sources, you might see a small wind turbine rise in your neighbor's back yard.
