Off-Shore Wind Farms Can 'Tame' Hurricane Winds, Surges, Stanford Study Finds [VIDEO]

  Climate scientists have been predicting more intense seasonal temperature variations and storms for several years now and recent winter ice storms in the deep south of the US, as well as ‘super storm’ Sandy, seem to lend much credence to this forecasting. And although this past hurricane season was less than spectacular — discounting Sandy, […]

Chance to Win Vespa! (from Wind Power Innovator)

Energy costs just keep on rising, with only short respites that allow us to stay complacent to pending environmental and energy shortage crises.

This has an effect on all of us every day. Even if we don’t drive and we power our house with clean energy sources like wind and solar energy, which use “free” fuel, the prices of everything are affected by rising dirty energy prices. Transportation of goods and electricity costs rise for most people and businesses, and those costs are passed on to everyone.

But, if we jump on the clean, green energy bandwagon now, at least, we can at least revel in our own electricity and transportation savings.

Do You Have a Sauer Energy Wind Turbine Yet?

Now, you may or may not know, other than working on Planetsave, the place I spend most of my time is working on CleanTechnica, our sister site dedicated to covering topics such as wind energy, solar energy, and energy efficiency. I actually was not much of a tech guy just a few years ago, but I started writing on there two summers ago and slowly became obsessed. Now, I’m considered an expert in the field.
