Renewable energy comes with tremendous opportunities as well as challenges, writes Scott Coenen of the Wisconsin Conservative Energy Forum.
Global Fiberglass Solutions plans to turn retired turbine blades into pellets for use in flooring, furniture and more.
Iowa, already one of the country’s leading producers of wind energy, will move even further out in front of the industry as MidAmerican Energy “repowers” roughly a quarter of its wind capacity.
In 2014, Ohio Senate Bill 310 temporarily rolled back renewable and energy efficiency standards. On its heels, state House Bill 483 significantly increased the property setback for wind turbines, thus increasing project costs. Now clean energy business executives and advocates say that money is flowing out of Ohio at a rapid rate as renewable energy companies look to greener pastures for their products and services.
