Making a difference. It's something we hear about a lot at this time of year, and we all know there are countless ways to make a difference in our own lives or the life of someone else. But what about making a different kind of difference? One that will impact us in a different kind of way? Today we're talking about wind power, friends....and how you can tap into its benefits!
So....what is wind power? In a nutshell, it's power that is obtained by harnessing the energy of the wind through the use of turbines. When wind blows over the blades of a turbine, the blades turn a shaft that runs a generator, which produces electricity.
Simple enough, right? But why should you care? Well, because wind power is a renewable energy source, meaning it's not depleted when used. It takes advantage of an abundant natural resource - a resource that's free, widely available, and clean, producing no air emissions or waste. Which means it's better for the environment, and, in turn, for us! And, since it's produced domestically and affordably, it offers greater electricity price stability and preparation for the future.
Okay....so how can we take advantage of wind power? For those of you who live in Colorado, Minnesota, New Mexico, Wisconsin, or Michigan, through a green power program called Windsource. Windsource is one of the nation's leading voluntary green power programs and enables Xcel Energy's electric customers to purchase renewable energy. The energy purchased is generated above and beyond the renewable energy in our standard energy supply and cannot be counted toward meeting state renewable energy requirements. In other words, it directly increases the amount of renewable energy in each state served.
Customers pay a small monthly fee to purchase renewable energy blocks. One block of Windsource (the starting subscription level) is enough to power all the lights in a typical home for a month. Windsource renewable energy credits (RECs) are retired on behalf of customers and Windsource RECs are non-transferable. Windsource is also certified through Green-e, the leading consumer protection certification for green power programs. It is currently being used in more than 57,000 homes and 1,200 businesses nationwide. Not only is it an easy, inexpensive way for individuals to support renewable energy, it's a great way for businesses to meet environmental compliance targets, receive LEED certification points, reduce environmental impact, enhance public image, and position themselves as an environmental leader.
