US Wind Power Limitations – Simple Math « The Multidisciplinarian. I am all for wind power where it makes sense.
It seems to make sense in certain high mountain passes in California where the wind is both strong and consistent – class 6 or 7 wind resources where class 3 or 4 is thought practical for power generation. For the most part, the US has thus far chosen its wind farm locations wisely in terms of energy generation. Some may say not so wisely from an aesthetic or habitat perspective, but that is not my concern here. Even without considering the base-load issues of wind (see previous post), projecting wind energy’s capability to supply a major portion of US energy demand by extrapolating from such high quality wind resources is ludicrous.

Welcome to OTHERPOWER.COM. Windmill Energy. Windmill Power. Windmill Generator. Windmill Generator. About Windustry. Our Motivation The sector of the economy responsible for the most greenhouse gas emissions is the power sector, and the source that produces the largest share of our electricity and the bulk of greenhouse gases is coal.
Community renewables are the most rapidly deployable form of green energy, because they require minimal upgrades to the transmission grid. Community renewables also provide the most economic benefit to their communities, since more of the dollars saved and made stay in the local community. Our Mission Statement Windustry's mission is to promote sustainable energy solutions and empower communities to develop and own clean energy assets. CanWEA. DSIRE: Database of State Incentives. Archive of Articles on Wind Energy, Energy, Electricity Feed Laws & Other Topics by Paul Gipe.
I've been working with wind energy since since 1976 and my professional experience in the subject runs the gamut from wind resource assessment to installing and testing small wind turbines.
I continue to follow the industry and analyze its growth and increasing contribution to renewable electricity generation worldwide. Follow the links for specific topics relating to wind energy. Topics on community wind can be found under Renewables and the more generic term Community Power. Paul Gipe. Wind and Water Power Program: Wind Powering America. Home Page.

Several years ago I bought some remote property in Arizona.
I am an astronomer and wanted a place to practice my hobby far away from the sky-wrecking light pollution found near cities of any real size. I found a great piece of property. The problem is, it's so remote that there is no electric service available. That's not really a problem. No electricity equals no light pollution. International - Our Vision. Aerotecture International seeks to radically transform the dominant paradigm of energy production and consumption around the globe.
Blending the concepts of aerodynamics and architecture, Aeroturbines are wind electric turbines designed to be attached to buildings or integrated into the very form of buildings. With Aeroturbines, buildings and other structures will not only consume electricity, but produce it on-site. Aerotecture Paradigm: Windspire Wind Turbines By Windspire Energy.

By Climate Guest Contributor on August 17, 2011 at 8:47 am "Koch Brothers Fund Bogus Study Bashing Offshore Wind in New Jersey" by Michael Conathan As anyone who’s traversed the northern segment of New Jersey’s infamous Turnpike can attest, the Garden State has a bit of an image problem when it comes to clean air.
And despite dramatic improvements over the past several decades, the state’s report card from the American Lung Association consisted almost entirely of Fs for ozone pollution, and counties received a cumulative 1.9 GPA for particle pollution, including 3 Fs and a D. Apparently, this suits the Koch brothers just fine.
