Arguably, there is no other energy production system that takes up as much space as wind does. As an example, the newest General Electric-built turbine will be 853 feet tall, close to the height of the Eiffel Tower, with each blade longer than a football field. As the country’s energy needs continue to grow, using wind energy to meet those requirements will call for a significantly greater amount of land than would traditional energy sources.
In sum, it’s important, in considering…Continue
