I will be attending this morning the dedication of Everpower's 70 megawatt Highland North wind farm in Cambria County, Pennsylvania.
This will be Pennsylvania's 17th wind generation site and push Pennsylvania's wind capacity over 800 megawatts.
Wind power is not perfect but it emits no air pollutants, uses no water, and discharges no water pollution. Landowners are paid nicely for each turbine sited on their property. Wind farms are major construction projects. Wind turbines are 60% on average made in the USA. And modern wind turbines produce a lot of electricity, at a very low production cost because the fuel is free.
That is an excellent package of benefits. More later on Pennsylvania's newest wind farm.
