Rural Renewable Energy By Partnering Farmers Together

Recent posts here have mentioned farmers pooling financial resources to grow the UAV market.   ABC Rural had a story about growing renewable energy in rural areas by having farmers coming together to build many solar panels and wind turbines and also to share the investment with the farmers’ neighbors.

In the United States it would be through county and regional Co-ops.  In the Upper Midwest there are many good wind prone areas across southwestern Minnesota and North and South Dakota.  North Dakota is as rich in wind energy as they are in Baakan oil right now.
