Why Utilities Are Embracing Wind Power

Over the last decade, as fears over the reliability and cost of wind power have proven overblown or unfounded, utilities have begun to generate more electricity from wind in their service areas. In the last few years, some utilities have fully embraced the renewable resource because of customer demand for cleaner energy. Utility support for wind was clear at the WindPower 2007 conference where 42 electricity providers were present. We’ll have a feature report from that conference on what utilities and system operators are saying about their commitment to the wind industry.

Also in the podcast: We’ve got more interviews from the exhibition hall at WindPower 2007. Listen in to learn about how companies maintain turbines, map out projects and pitch new ideas to the rest of the industry.

Inside Renewable Energy offers the latest in renewable energy news and information.

Please note: Next week’s show will not be released until Friday, June 22nd. We will be podcasting from the Renewable Energy Finance Forum in New York City.
