cheap to run – wind turbines have low maintenance and operating expenses

good for the economy – wind projects create thousands of jobs and support local communities where projects are located

ecological – wind energy doesn’t require water so it’s a smart energy choice for drought vulnerable areas

cost-effective – it gives a sound return on your investment and can provide revenue to rural landowners, farmers and communities

reasonably priced – state and federal incentives are available to reduce your initial project costs

energy independent – wind reduces our reliance on foreign fossil fuels creating a more stable energy supply without price volatility

resourceful – it can deliver energy to remote locations that don’t have access to the utility grid
