Wind Energy, Southern California

Hundreds of wind turbines harvest the strong desert winds to turn into electric power. This famous field of windmills has been spinning for over twenty years. I can never resist taking photos as we zoom past on Interstate 10 coming and going from Palm Springs, California. There are also a lot of solar panels out here to capture even more clean energy. Now the utilities are letting home owners put up their own mini towers to get even more renewable energy. As a nation we could increase or renewables by ten fold and we will need too. No way is perfect but its sure beats coal, oil, and nuclear fuels.
