[Tweeters] RE Wind Power

A last note before this is put to bed for the night. Doug hit on an
important issue. Solar power has best efficiency as widespread use by
individuals rather than as centralized collection and distant distribution,
but that is not something that power companies are going to profit from.
Maybe the PUDs and other power companies can issue rebates for individual
solar installations to reach the green power percentage mandated by the last
initiative. I would love to put heavily subsidized solar panels on my home
and hold down the number of power lines that also impact birds during
migration and daily movements, especially when fog settles in. Can you
imagine solar panels on every business and home, at least in sunny environs
where a/c demand can be high (like this weekend!)

I also must take Richards tact and thank Scott for posting thought
provoking and informative information. We should truly take his advice and
do our homework.
I encourage you to read up on this most important issue. While we
worry about birds, and rightly so, it may be our very future that depends on
our decisions in the next few years.
