Put your Wind / Solar Installation on the Map

has put together an interesting site that could use your input and help.    Besides the updated industry news, this new venture is also looking for guest columnist(s) that can bring a particular flair to subject(s) we need to address. 

The one area I will direct your attention to is the MAP of Wind and Solar Instulation .   Some of you may be surprised at the amount of activity in your state, others need to support the sites effort and add additional installations to the MAP.   Like there’s no WIND in Alabama?

EBA_logo_mainMission Statement:    To protect and preserve bank net income and assets from environmental exposure and liability resulting from lending and trust activities through the employment of environmental risk management in the U.S. and worldwide.

So now we address RISK in lending activities – we bailed you out why again?   Why do you believe “Going Green” is something you do internal?   I don’t see any financial arm stepping forward to finance any “GREEN” projects, someone help me with this.   My taxes went where / why? 

Global Wind Day – Renewable Energy

15 06 2009

AWEA.Org – put together a list of Top 20 States Wind Energy Resource Potential.

Just a one small note – Illinios is listed @ 16 where Indiana is no-where on the list.  Yet, as of today, Indiana has (3) working Wind Farms and (3) more to be operational by the end of 2009.

North Dakato has the highest potential.   Considering the Indian population is the largest minority (just less than 6%),  wonder who has the highest potential to obtain “GRANT” money to develop this area…..

wind_turbinesIndianapolis, IN, March 17, 2009 – Horizon Wind Energy has selected Bowen Engineering as the balance of plant contractor for the Meadow Lake wind farm in White County, Indiana. This 200 megawatt facility is the first of several wind farms Horizon is developing in Indiana.

“Horizon is a leader in wind energy, and our team is pleased to work with such an outstanding firm,” said Bowen Operations Manager Dennis Ward. “Renewable energy, particularly wind energy, is in a growth phase. We are excited to see these technologies come to Indiana, and we are proud to contribute to sustainable power generation.”

Bowen will begin work immediately, providing overall site coordination and logistics as well as constructing the turbine foundations and road improvements. A total of one hundred twenty one (121) wind turbine generators will be erected in farm fields and connected to a new electrical substation for integration into the transmission grid. The project will be completed by October, 2009.
