    No higher prices for 15 years? They paid up front for the deal? Or is the price increase already in place?

    If the wind at the 3 turbines quits the town shuts down? Fat chance of that! They will pay spot price for replacement power.

    This is Forward thinking and wise

    I think if we can get wind turbines installed along an amazing wind corridor that runs from the Canadian bordere to Texas this town will have even more options.
    Good for them, their is another city I think that is building green in Kansas because of an tornado destruction. The leaders of these large towns should be future leaders of our nation.

    So using wind turbines qualifies one for national leadership?

    Our city council just gave the 'go ahead' for "wind farms" around the county. I hope they never get the go ahead in my town.

    I would love to have one behind my house. Be glad to give up a parking space for it.
