So, why not go all-in for wind power and begin planning for land based wind turbines? Land-based wind turbines are already part of land-locked European and American energy infrastructure, including the hard to ignore five wind turbines just as you enter Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Atlantic City is not alone in land-based wind power turbines, First Winds energy has eight locations in Maine, Vermont and upstate New York producing 420 megawatts of power – enough to provide electricity for 126,000 homes.
