Renewable Energy: Wind Power’s Contribution to Electric Power Generation & Impact on Farms & Rural Communities
Lawrence J. Dyckman (au); James R. Jones, Jr. (au). Wind power (WP) provides electricity without polluting the air or depleting nonrenewable resources. WP relies on steady winds to turn the blades of power-generating turbines. Because these turbines generally are located on rural lands, WP could also provide econ. benefits to farmers & rural communities. The 2002 farm bill created a renewable energy program & auth. $115 million for the USDA to provide assist. for renewable energy projects, incl. WP. This report examines: (1) the amount of elec. generated by U.S. WP & prospects for its growth; (2) the contribution of WP to farmers’ income & rural communities; (3) the advantages & disad. for farmers of owning a WP project vs. leasing land for a project; & (4) USDA’s efforts to promote WP in rural communities.
