Please Go Solar With Wind!
Thank you for the good report!
For if you have problems with the link, from the article:

'Honda Transmission Mfg. of America Inc. has finalized installation and will begin operation of two power-producing wind turbines next week at its plant in Russells Point, Ohio, through an agreement with a subsidiary of ConEdison Solutions.

Honda Transmission says studies it commissioned indicate that wind power is a cost-effective source of electricity for the plant and that the project will not adversely impact local wildlife or the environment. The two wind turbines, with blades approximately 160 feet long, will supply about 10% of the plant's power needs. Based on their location and actual wind speeds, combined output from the two wind turbines is estimated at 10,000 MWH per year, the company adds.

ConEdison Solutions will own and operate the turbines through its subsidiary, RP Wind LLC. The company is working in collaboration with Juhl Energy of Pipestone, Minn., which served as the primary developer of the project.

Through agreements with Honda Transmission, ConEdison Solutions will generate electricity for the plant and be responsible for an interconnect agreement with the Logan County Electric Cooperative and an additional agreement with Buckeye Power Inc., an Ohio electric cooperative.

Globally, Honda says it has established voluntary goals to reduce the environmental impact of its products and manufacturing operations by 2020. This includes a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions from Honda products and significant CO2 reductions from the company’s plants and other operations, compared with year 2000 levels.'

Wind turbines, wind mills, wind energy producers, are good!
Thank you for the notes and the comments!
Some considerations:
The laws on Birds for Wind Energy are very strict -- if the wind turbines cause a certain number of the birds to die -- the companies are getting sued.

1.) If people do build wind -- so that the wind turbines are where the birds will not fly into the turbines and buildings -- then wind energy would be good -- with the other IF.

2.) If people will use some wood and recycled-material wind turbines -- please see the article on wood turbine in Inhabit -- then there are less steel and less fiberglass wind turbines. This less steel would mean less mining or using recycled metals. Less mining usually has a better impact on the earth and all that lives on earth.

3.) The less use of fiberglass would mean using an organic material such as wood or some other bio-degrade-able material.

4. Wood windmills can and would be made efficient and beautiful -- so this would help the atmosphere and the scenery.
