Pa. communities urged by governor to join wind power projects

Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell is urging municipalities to participate in small-scale wind-energy projects throughout the state to reduce the state´s dependence on imported energy.

The Pennsylvania Energy Development Authority awarded Southwest Windpower a $193,000 grant to place 15 small wind turbines in highly visible locations across the state. Each turbine will generate 1.8 kilowatts of electricity, enough to power an average home. Making them visible will encourage people to adopt alternative energy source, Rendell said.

"The price of imported fuel is too high in terms of dollars and security," he said. "By placing these windmills in where many people can see them, Pennsylvanians will be able to learn about and experience alternative energy as part of their daily lives."
