Corporate Green Power Effort Expands to Europe

December 1, 2005 Montreal, Canada [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Some of the largest companies in the world this week announced they have increased their purchases of renewable energy. The World Resources Institute (WRI) and members of its Green Power Market Development Group announced 185 new MW of renewable energy purchases and projects, bringing the total number of MW under contract to 360 -- the average size of a coal-fired power plant. "These firms are joined today in Europe by an expanded set of companies that will explore new renewable projects that complement progressive EU policies on renewables. Climate change is a global issue, and these leaders demonstrate that their companies can look across borders to find alternative green energy solutions to fit their local circumstances." -- Jonathan Lash, World Resources Institute president

Wind Power And The Public's Interest

Let's just change the names of where the wind power companies want to put their towers from East Haven Mountain, Hardscrabble Mountain, Granby Mountain, Libby Hill, Norris Mountain and the Lowell Mountain Range, to Burke Mountain, Jay Peak, Mount Mansfield, Camel's Hump, Killington Mountain and Mount Equinox. How much of a possibility of municipal approval of scores of 400-foot wind towers on those ridge lines do you think the wind power companies would get? We suspect they would have two chances - slim and none.
