The flat lands are hella windy.  I've seen straight winds bend street signs.  Alot of power companies are investing in this area for wind power. So yeah, it's windy.

yeah, I'll have to look up the URL's but I know some sites with DIY wind mills.  I'll post those ASAP and then we just need to start gather the supplies and figuring out what the minimal amount of power needed will be.

Try to find a windmill that doesn't break down at high speeds (most wind turbines you see these days will).  Also, look into barrel turbines.  They take up a lot less space, which means (in this case) that they cost less.

I say, if we can obtain it, use it.

Fresnel lenses for heat/thermal/steam, solar panels for sun, generators, turbines. I think we can agree that we shouldn't limit ourselves? (Unless it means coal. I don't think we want capitalism or coal mining to be part of the commune Razz)
