      "Investing in Renewable Energy" is the topic at Houston Peak Oil
      Progressives Meeting, Sunday, February 12, 2:30 pm.

      "Power of Wind", an 11 minute movie from American Wind Energy
      Association, will be shown. Also, Jim Hofweber will talk about
      investing in renewables, especially wind. Hofweber is a member of
      Texas Renewable Industries Association and Houston Renewable Energy Group.

      Wind electricity generation is growing faster than ever. In 2005,
      $3 billion wind electricity generating equipment was
      installed. When current projects are completed, US wind will
      produce enough electricity to power 2.3 million homes and displace
      emissions of 15 million tons of carbon
      dioxide.

      Street, which is between Montrose Street & Downtown

        Thanks for the following information. Our company is working on a 50 MW Wind Farm project slated by the Alternate Energy Development Board set up by the Government of Pakistan. Thus far we are running into one problem, i.e. rate for power production agreed by the authorities in that country, more so than the financing aspects for the project. Once that is settled then and only then, the projects partners will acquire the Wind Turbines from Gamesa, and start the project. Another hurdle faced is the agreement of existing Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) to build a transmission line in time to connect the grid with this farm. This has been going on since 1989, and political upheavels have delayed setting up such wind farms thus far, but with UNDP getting involved trying to provide funds as anb incentive under the Kyoto Protocol to curb the polluting emissions, it is becoming a reality than a political football now than it was before.
        Although Wind power is the fastest growing renewable energy source, yet according to international studies made for Poverty Alleviation, everyone from poor to rich man needs LIGHT at night, which means SolarPV will comliment the role of Wind Energy, which can provide LIGHT for the powerless (Ref: Solar Today, March/April, 2003) in any remote corner of the world.
