Wind Power Wilmington DE
West Chester, PA
Rehoboth Beach, DE
There's a breath of fresh air blowing across the country, and it's providing power for a growing number of homes. As more developers and communities discover the benefits of wind as a clean energy source, they're building windfarms and offering wind-generated energy to tens of thousands of homeowners nationwide.
One of the latest developments in residential wind power was the announcement in January that Shadow Creek Ranch, a 3,300-acre master planned community in Pearland, Texas, just outside of Houston, has become the first wind-powered community in the state. Austin-based Green Mountain Energy Co., a provider of cleaner electricity generated from sources such as wind and water, and Freedom Seal, a certifier of energy-efficient homes, have partnered to offer homeowners at Shadow Creek reliable wind energy at a competitive rate.
Most electricity in the United States is generated by coal and nuclear power, notes Andy Price, a spokesman for Green Mountain Energy, but "people are starting to look at renewable energy as an economically viable choice." That's what's happening at Shadow Creek, where a typical homeowner who uses an average 1,000 kilowatt-hours monthly and signs up for Green Mountain Energy electricity can help prevent nearly 18,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere annually - the equivalent of taking two cars off the road for a year.
Those two factors - economics and the environment -are driving the installation of a number of windfarms nationwide. For example:
Other projects in California, New Mexico, Oklahoma, North Dakota and Iowa, among other states, are currently in or under development.
Wind power is no cheaper than conventional electricity, but this should change as more windfarms are built, experts say. For now, the biggest benefit is that the generation of energy from the wind produces significantly less pollution than coal-fired plants, nuclear power plants and energy derived from oil. And that's a breath of fresh air for us all.
Economics and concernfor the environment are driving the development of windfarms nationwide.
