    High Winds Mean Boom For The Southeast

    America's Wind Energy Boom May Finally Be Coming to the Southeast; Local support flies in the face of Republican opposition, and some long-resistant states like North Carolina are now poised to join the country's wind power surge.

    Lyndsey Gilpin, April 13, 2017 (Inside Climate News)

    “…Across the country, wind energy is growing rapidly…But the Southeast has almost completely been left out of that boom…[A new utility-scale wind project in North Carolina funded by Amazon that went into operation last year] could signal a shift for the region. Despite heavy opposition and campaigns against renewable energy in the state, developers successfully fought for approval…Now, other wind farms are in the works in nearby states…Wind generated 5.5 percent of electricity in the U.S. last year and is on track to supply 10 percent by 2020…[but] the only Southeastern state producing wind power was Tennessee…[The Southeast’s terrain is] not optimal for wind turbines…But in the last three to five years, taller turbines and longer blades have allowed access to faster, steadier speeds that make projects] economically viable…[Even so, the Southeast’s attachment to coal] is a major barrier…[Major utility monopolies] are still reliant on the fossil fuel industry…Local and state lawmakers across the region, lobbied and supported by those utilities and other fossil fuel interests, have continually pushed against clean energy…[It's largely up to renewable energy advocates] to push for these projects one at a time, starting at the local level…” click here for more
