Harnessing the Power of the Wind

The World believes that the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) is the principal cause of global warming. A reduction in the use of these energy fuels will help solve the problem. Today we burn 35 Billion barrels of oil per year along with 5 Billion tons of coal, and 150 Trillion cubic feet of natural gas. That’s a lot of pollutants and carbon dioxide into the earth’s atmosphere.
We believe that the only real solution will be 1000’s of small highly efficient wind turbines connected directly to the electric grids of investor owned electric utilities.
By this process, the cost of the turbines is not amortized because the shareholders own the investment. Therefore the cost of electricity going into the grid is essentially Zero as there is no fuel cost.
The energy in wind is enormous. and it flows directly over our heads- everywhere. There’s enough power to supply all of civilizations’ needs many times over.
