We aren't the only ones talking about wind turbines. A Washington Post article notes that consumers are choosing to buy green electricity, and are even willing to pay a premium in order to get their power from sustainable or alternative sources.
The trend is upward elsewhere, too. Utilities in 36 states offer some form of green pricing, and last year 430,000 households bought green power _ up 20 percent from a year earlier, the U.S. Energy Department reported.
Hopefully, this trend will continue, and power companies will continue to find increasing demand for green power and lower equipment costs as the technology continues to improve and develop.
