Solar and Wind

Agro Energy Solutions has the land capacity to host solar and wind farms. Renewable energy is clean, affordable, domestic, and effectively infinite. It produces no emissions and results in cleaner air and water for all. Renewable power creates jobs and generates revenue for local communities.

The United States has some of the best wind resources in the world, with enough potential energy to produce nearly 10 times the country's existing power needs. Wind energy is now one of the most cost-effective sources of new generation, competing with new installations of coal, gas and nuclear power. Its cost has dropped steadily over the past few years, as wind turbine technology has improved. Currently, over 400 American manufacturing plants build wind components, towers and blades.

Solar power can also help meet America's energy demand. Solar installations in the United States exceed 3,100 megawatts, enough to power more than 630,000 homes. The solar industry employs more than 100, 000 Americans and grew by 69 percent in 2010, making it one of the fastest growing sectors in the U.S. The price of solar panels has dropped by 30 percent since 2010 and costs continue to fall. The United States was a net exporter of solar products in 2010 by $2 billion.

Wind and solar energy are reliable sources of electricity that can diversify our nation's energy portfolio. Agro Energy Solutions has the capacity to develop these technologies.
