Power options

November 5, 2006


To the editor:

I think Lawrence should take a stand and send a letter to discourage more coal-fired power plants. The power company said it would encourage its alternative energy program because the power lines would be in place. Why can't they put the lines in for alternative energy and skip the pollution?

This would still create jobs and open up more opportunities for Kansans - and help decrease pollutants in our air we breathe. I took a minute to send an e-mail to our governor to let her know where I stand as a voter. I urge everyone to take a minute and write a note. Thanks to the Sierra Club for the letter to the editor. Thanks to Mike Rundle for taking a stand for Lawrence. We can make a difference.

Wind farms create far more jobs than coal plants per terawatt hour. Wind farms also allow for economic development in many more rural counties than traditional forms of energy currently do. Rural landowners benefit economically by allowing a wind energy company to install wind turbines on their property. The benefits of having just one turbine on the property can generate between $2,000-$5,000 in revenue per individual turbine.
