Wind project developer and AWEA member First Wind has produced a very nice and succinct 3-minute video about the benefits of a new wind farm in Cohocton, N.Y.
Some representative quotes from local citizens featured in the video:
“We've always had wind here … my dad and I have talked about it for 25 years–you know, we ought to harness the wind and DO something with it.”
“There were in excess of 250 people working on this project, and I know that over half of them were from the local area.”
“I've seen a lot of changes–from horses to tractors, steam engines to diesel locomotives on the trains, and I like the project. I like the windmills comin' in.”
Great to see and hear.
