  •  No one is rejecting wind turbines (7+ / 0-)

    in my rural area. I haven't heard any complaints about noise, especially from the farmers who make money by leasing a couple of acres for a turbine as part of a wind farm. I can see 100 turbines on the horizon from my back window. I think they look cool, especially at night when their red lights are blinking.

    Wind power provides about 20% of my electricity. It is supplied by my REC via power lines. Iowa's largest investor-owned utility now generates about 30% of its power by wind.
