WIND ENERGY

"With its energy, economic, and environmental benefits, wind is the technology that is ready today to power America's future."

-- Randall Swisher
American Wind Energy Association

The world's fastest-growing renewable energy source is wind. Nearly 2,500 megawatts of installed capacity is slated to go online in the U.S. in 2005 at a capital cost of approximately $3.5 billion.

Farmers, ranchers, tribes, school districts and municipalities are looking to wind for its economic, environmental and reliability benefits.

Using more wind power can also quickly and effectively help alleviate the natural gas crisis and stabilize volatile prices. The more wind power the U.S. installs, the less natural gas and other fuels are needed for electricity generation.

Today's modern turbines are sleek, quiet, efficient. Properly sited wind parks pose significantly reduced avian impacts. Wind energy is typically the least-cost renewable technology and, given a good wind resource, is cost-competitive with new fossil fuel plants.
