Resource Energy Group has genuine expertise in all areas of renewable energy. We advise both public and private sector clients on all aspects of renewable energy projects. This includes advising on corporate structures, power purchase agreements, grid connection agreements and with the Local Utilities governing the renewable energy sector.

Clean, renewable forms of energy, such as wind power, are essential if we are to tackle climate change. They are also vital in ending the threat of nuclear power, which would leave a legacy of nuclear waste that will remain a threat to our health and the environment for hundreds of thousands of years.
Wind Turbines - Wind Power in Colorado

Here's why wind power, in particular, deserves your consideration:

It's clean.
Wind power does not produce dangerous waste, nor does it contribute to global warming.

It's abundant and reliable.
The US is one of the windiest countries in the world and the resource is much greater during the colder months of the year, when energy demand is at its highest. Wind power, in combination with a full range of renewable energy technologies, such as wave and solar, could meet all of our electricity needs. Technology is being developed to store wind power as hydrogen which can then be used to power fuel cells in power stations and in vehicles.

It's affordable.
Wind turbines in the US are producing power more cheaply than our newest nuclear power station. The US Government's figures show that all wind power will be cheaper than nuclear power by 2020.

It works.
Denmark already gets 20% of its electricity from wind power.

It creates jobs.
The wind industry could bring thousands of new jobs to the US. If offshore wind were developed to supply just 10% of the US's electricity, then 36,000 jobs could be created.

It's safe.
Unlike nuclear power stations, wind turbines are unlikely terrorist targets.

It's popular.
Wind energy is one of the most popular energy technologies. Opinion surveys regularly show that just over eight out of ten people are in favour of wind energy, and less than one in ten (around 5%) are against it.

In general, it is the rural areas where the Turbines are the most suitable. Being close to other buildings can cause turbulence, which reduces the efficiency of the turbines. There are also many other constraints: closeness to airports, land ownership, safety considerations and land designation. Although wind turbines are NOT noisy, developers do their best to keep them as far away from residential properties as possible.
