operating commercial wind farms in nevada
WASHINGTON, March 12 (UPI) — U.S. Renewable Energy Group, China-based A-Power Energy Generation Systems and American Nevada Group announced plans to build a wind turbine manufacturing facility in Nevada.
The 320,000-square-foot plant, with annual production capacity of 1,100 megawatts of wind energy turbines annually — enough to power 330,000 homes — is expected to be ready for operation by the end of 2011. It is expected to employ approximately 1,000 Nevada workers.
In making the announcement Thursday, the partners credited U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., …

From the time of recorded history in the Silver State, men have talked about the wind. Some say Tuscarora is the windiest community in the state, others claim the title for wherever they reside. One thing for sure, the wind blows in Nevada. …
Wind powered generators have been used for thousands of years starting in Persia as early as 200 B.C. Initially these were used for the main method of grinding corn and to draw water from the ground. Leading on from this in 1887 came the first electricity producing, battery charging wind generators with output yields of up to 25kw by 1908. By the 1930s Commercial wind powered generators become extremely common on large yielding farms.
There are two main types of wind powered generators. The horizontal-axis wind turbine, and the vertical-axis variation, both having their …

Here is the good news: wind energy is clean and renewable. It doesnt produce toxic waste that causes environmental damage, or deplete natural resources such as coal, oil or gas.
According to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), 80 percent of people the group had surveyed are enthusiastic about wind energy and consider it to be one of the most popular energy technologies.
The bad news, however, is that for many people living in the vicinity of wind farms, the noise produced by the rotating turbines is irritating to the ears.
Beauty is in the “ear” …
One of the most impressive things about the Danish people is their commitment to the environment—and to being energy independent. Unlike the United States, Denmark is a net energy exporter. That means they produce enough energy to meet their own needs and have leftovers to sell to other nations.
Wouldn’t that be nice?
Now, the Danes are lucky in that they’ve discovered oil off of their coast in the …
Guidelines on Grid Connection for Wind Farms in Brazil Introduction
Currently, there is a lack of technical material in Brazil that could help power engineers in the analysis of the impacts of grid connected wind turbines, and also orientate the grid connection design of wind turbines and wind farms in the national electrical network. The course: “Interconnecting wind farms to the national power system”, held in August 2001 in Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil, identified, through the specialists’ debates, this lack of material.
The “Guidelines on Grid Connection for …
Wind on the Texas coast is tempting for energy companies. Unlike other parts of Texas – the nation’s No. 1 wind energy state – the coast has breezes that blow consistently on summer days, when energy demand peaks. But there’s risk, too.
Millions of birds funnel through the Texas coast before they head north along the Central Flyway, one of the great bird migration routes between South America and the Arctic. This was the first year that wind farms were operating there during the spring migration.
One study near the coastal wind farms in Kenedy County, near the …
Wind News Siemens intent to supply Great Lakes offshore wind farms
Lake Erie Alternative Power is basing its wind development proposals on Siemens’ 3.6MW offshore turbine
Wind turbine manufacturer Siemens has signed a Letter of Intent to supply turbines for offshore wind projects developed by the Lake Erie Alternative Power (LEAP) group.
The group is aiming to develop up to 5,040 megawatts of offshore wind farms around the Great Lakes.
The $13 billion development would come in six phases, with 1,400 wind turbines in the form of …
An eight-turbine wind farm will open in Panhandle, Texas in May. But instead of referring to it as “that Panhandle wind farm,” it will be have a branded, corporate name: “The Wege Wind Energy Farm, provided by Steelcase.”
Steelcase, a large furniture company out of Michigan, has agreed ahead of time to buy all of the wind farm’s renewable energy credits (RECs) for the first …
