Google recently announced that they are investing about $40 million dollars in North Dakota wind farms. As a North Dakotan, I am happy to see some of the attention this great state should get in regards to green energy. Believe it or not, my home may be the future of US energy.
The Department of Energy produced a report that shows North Dakota being the state with the most wind potential. Furthermore, this state ALONE has the potential to supply 25% of the US electricity needs. I hope that this sort of investment continues here.
North Dakota has a lot to offer in terms of energy. We have coal, oil, agriculture and now wind. So, Google, WELCOME to North Dakota!
