           LIVING GREEN - Monday, July 21, 2008
-----------------------------------------------------------


Good morning, 

Is it possible to get away from the thousands of coal and 
oil fired power plants that dot the landscape and provide 
the invaluable electric power for almost every modern con-
venience in our lives? Maybe, but it will require a shift 
away from polluting fossil fuels to alternate forms of 
energy production. 

Alternative energy production is frequently discussed but 
really how realistic is it? Scroll down for some hard 
numbers on the most popular commercial investment for 
alternative energy. Wind power. 

Thanks for reading, 

Your Living Green editor

Wind power capacity in the United States grew 27 percent 
in 2006 and increased another 26 percent in 2007, according 
to a report released today by the trade group the American 
Wind Energy Association. The U.S. now has enough installed 
wind power capacity - 11,603 megawatts - to power between 
3 million and 3.5 million homes, which reduces annual green-
house gas emissions by 23 million tons of carbon dioxide. 
The number of homes relying on electricity produced by wind 
energy will rise to nearly 4.5 million by year's end if the 
AWEA's forecast is accurate. 

Texas and California are the wind energy superstates and 
will continue to add capacity in this year as California 
utilities like PG&E and Southern California Edison sign 
deals with wind farm developers so they can meet state-
mandated renewable energy targets. For instance, last month 
Southern California Edison agreed to buy 1,500 megawatts 
of wind energy from a subsidiary of Australian company Allco 
Finance, a move that will boost California's wind power 
capacity by 65 percent. And Texas wind farms currently under 
construction will crank out another 1,013 megawatts, adding 
37 percent to the state's wind power generation.
