Abstract:
Wind is the second-largest source of renewable energy in the nation. In May 2011 the North Carolina Utilities Commission approved the Desert Wind Energy Project. If approved by other agencies (state, local, and federal) 150, 400-foot tall wind turbines will go up near Elizabeth City. This will produce enough electricity for up to 70,000 homes. Manuel discusses how this project could impact wildlife.
