NEC Comments

Comments New Energy Congress members about Wind Farms.

Here and Now -- Top 5

On Jan. 29, 2007, New Energy Congress member, Mark Dansie wrote:

Wind Farms are here and now. They have an immediate effect on reducing the need for fossil fuel. The USA is aiming for 28000megs by 2010 up from just 450 megs in 2004. I rank wind farms top 5 as they are having an impact now, along with solar and new battery technologies.

Next Best Thing to Hydro for Renewables

On Jan. 29, 2007, New Energy Congress member, Nicholas Testad of http://www.2020institute.org/ wrote:

Wind is fast becoming an enormous source of energy, and I voted as such (top 10). In terms of putting solid numbers on the board, wind is by far the best thing this country has had recently in addition to Hydro power.

Lowest-Cost Renewable for Utility Scale

On Jan. 30, 2007, New Energy Congress member, Troy Helming of http://www.Krystal-Planet.com wrote:

For the foreseeable future, we will need utility-scale energy generation. Wind is by far the least cost choice for new generation on a utility scale. Wind energy can also double as a hydrogen production source, producing H2 at night by electrolyzing water (even waste water) during off-peak hours. I voted it top 5. Developing more small distributed generation sources will help reduce the need for new power plants. While the electric demand declines due to efficiency gains and distributed generation, large-scale wind farms added steadily can help accelerate the decommissioning of dirty fossil plants. We need both wind farms and distributed generation in my opinion.

Requires Back-up Power System

On Nov. 17, 2007, Abla Gado <Eng_a_g {at} yahoo.com> wrote:

The energy output of a wind generator is variable due to the variability of wind speed at the installation site through the day hours and year months. Therefore, a back-up power supply (BUPS) is necessary for operating WG to supply isolated loads. This BUPS could be a diesel generator and/or an alternative sources of renewable energy system at the installation site.
