Wind energy proponents see advantages
CHRISTIAN COUNTY — Members of the Christian County Wind Energy Coalition (CCWEC) support efforts to establish two wind farms in the southeast portion of the county. They point to economic benefits to local units of governments and school districts as well as having the county on the cutting edge of the use of renewable energy in the United States. These large turbines convert the wind into electricity.
CHRISTIAN COUNTY — Members of the Christian County Wind Energy Coalition (CCWEC) support efforts to establish two wind farms in the southeast portion of the county. They point to economic benefits to local units of governments and school districts as well as having the county on the cutting edge of the use of renewable energy in the United States. These large turbines convert the wind into electricity.
While the majority of the news coverage has focused on opposition to wind turbines being established in Christian County, there are county residents who think wind farms can be an asset to the county. Several of those proponents expressed their opinions during recent interviews. They are also members of a loose-knit group known as the Christian County Wind Energy Coalition (CCWEC).

Organizers report nearly 300 members which is tied together by social media. Collectively, they have presented the Christian County Board with a petition bearing 1,400 signatures in support of the wind farm projects. They support two companies, Trade Winds Energy Rolling Farms and Invenergy’s Rose City Wind Farm, who are seeking to establish projects, mainly settled in the southeast quadrant of the county. The organization sees the advancement of wind technology as the wave of the future in green energy production.
