Farmers and ranchers can learn how to put wind to work for them. I have advocated this for years… the concept of generating additional revenue on farms and ranches. Here’s a great one. With support from the U.S. Department of Energy - Windustry has been bringing practical “how to” information on Community and Small Wind to every region of the country. These community conferences showcase ordinary people doing extraordinary work on a local level for residential and commercial wind development. Lisa Daniels is Founder and Executive Director of Windustry - a group that promotes progressive renewable energy solutions and empowers communities to develop and own wind energy as an environmentally sustainable asset. She says these conferences really have something for everyone - especially those in rural America: “ It’s for farmers, ranchers, rural communities, anybody who wants to learn more about wind energy and how it might be right for either their home, their farm, their business or their community.” According to Daniels - national experts will provide all of the information rural landowners need to unlock the economic growth potential of locally-owned wind energy.
