Wind Power

OPB | Feb. 1, 1993 7:30 p.m.

Renewable energy specialist Don Bain takes us to 7 mile hill outside of the Dalles, and explains the potential of this area for wind turbines. Choice wind locations are plentiful in Oregon, but convincing the public to tolerate the visual impact of turbine fields is another issue. The potential problems of wind power are solvable, Bain says, and the benefits far out way the negatives.
