To the editor:
Kansas is known for wind power as in the Wizard of Oz. So why aren't we harvesting it as they do in the Lamar, Colo., Green Power Project? More than 25 percent of the energy to this area in Lamar is supplied by the windmills. We know because we visited Lamar this summer.
For us not to use this green resource is like those who live near Niagara Falls not to use the falls for hydro-electric power. Not to use your resources is stupid and wasteful.
There are more than 300 gigantic windmills of the GE Power Project in Lamar with three vanes on each one to catch the wind from any direction. Some weren't moving at all because it wasn't a windy day when we were there. Our coal and oil supply won't last forever. Use the wind when you have it and conserve.
Hanging laundry on the line when it's sunny or windy instead of using the dryer is another way to conserve energy.
