Q: I'd like to see renewable energy in action. Where can I find wind turbines?
A: Hopefully in the new energy bill! It's all up to Congress, which is still working to reconcile competing versions of the energy bill passed by both the U.S. House and Senate this summer.
If you support developing more renewable energy, now is a great time to contact your representatives in Congress and let them know. A good place to check for updates on the energy bill is Renewable Energy Access. These are a few of the issues related specifically to wind.
(All joking aside, if you're looking for the locations of wind turbines, check out this handy map from the American Wind Energy Association, which lists commercial-scale wind projects across the United States, and you can learn more about home-scale wind power options here.)
