Pennsylvania is Giving Away 15 Wind Turbines

penn-wind-01.jpgThe Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority wants to generate some buzz about alternative energy, so they have "awarded a $193,000 grant to Southwest Windpower [the world's largest producer of small wind turbines] to place 15 small, advanced technology wind turbines in highly visible locations across the state." The Governor said: "The price of imported fuel is too high in terms of dollars and security. To become energy independent ourselves, Pennsylvania is blazing a new trail by making strategic investments to build a base of alternative energy supplies and infrastructure that can meet the clean energy needs of our residents and our economy. By placing these windmills in where many people can see them, Pennsylvanians will be able to learn about and experience alternative energy as part of their daily lives."
