We are living in an exciting time where technology is allowing us to leapfrog over the barriers that were preventing access to reliable power in many parts of the world. Going forward, you will begin to see many more distributed energy resources (DER's) that are not tethered to the grid of reliant on a fossil fuel.
Renewable energy is imperative. While no renewable source is the answer for all of our energy needs, wind energy has its attributes. Unlike the sun, wind is everywhere all the time. Wind power has become reasonably cost effective compared to other renewable forms. However, wind is not as cost effective as it should be.
