Wind Energy Can Supply 20% by 2030

Read this report - a US Dept of Energy analysis on the capabilities of wind, which finds that 20% of all US energy needs could be supplied by wind sources by the year 2030. The report is, forgive me, a breath of fresh air.

Think of the ramifications if the US Govt actually pursued and encouraged wind technologies...

- 25% cut in carbon emissions, as old-school power plants fall off the grid
- decreased water consumption by utilities (a liferaft to NC, if ever we needed one)
- new wind- and green-related jobs

Unfortunately, the analysis is not a committment, only a hard look at the possibilities of wind.

One more boon to consumers:

- no rising fuel prices
