Community Wind Energy moves forward in Door County

Posted on February 1, 2008. Filed under: General |


The newsletter of Community Wind Energy LLC reports on develops in Door County:

Community Wind Energy LLC of Door County (CWE) continues its local effort to bring wind energy to Door County. Broad support in the community for CWE’s work shows that landowners and other citizens understand that wind energy is part of the solution to rising energy demands.

It also points to an interest among the citizenry to resist further burning of fossil fuels which contributes so heavily to greenhouse gases.

State, national and international governments are increasing support for sustainable energy production and use. For instance, Governor Doyle recently met with other Midwest governors who supported the Federal Production Tax Credit (PTC) extension,which gives incentive to investors in the renewable energy industry. The PTC would help provide a more level playing field with the heavily subsidized fossil fuel industry. Internationally, wind energy remains the fastest growing energy source at nearly 30 percent.

Energy demand is also expected to rise worldwide also by 30 percent and wind provides themost economical solution to that demand.
