Wind Power: It’s in the air!


Wind Power. It’s been defined as green, clean, sustainable, and even affordable. In an effort to be more “green,” save or even generate money, and reduce waste, several companies are turning to the wind turbine.

In Indiana, Purdue University and its commercial partner Performance Services have planned and designed a $200 million wind farm scheduled to begin generating electric power by late 2012. Earlier this week, the University gave approval to proceed with the project, which will involve obtaining regulatory approval. If the project is approved, the team hopes to generate 100 megawatts, which could power up to 25,000 homes.

In Canada, Greengate Power Corp. just this week has received provincial approval from the Alberta Utilities Commission to build Canada’s largest wind farm in southern Alberta. The project is expected to be Canada’s largest operating wind energy project with a total generating capacity of 300 megawatts when it is completed.
