I feel like an ass driving to work and back in my Wrangler so I broke down and switched my electric bill to 100% wind power. My energy provider, Xcel, offers several tiers of wind power consumption via their Windsource program. Windsource is a Green-e certified for enviromental and consumer protection standards. Based on the amount of electricity I use it will only raise my monthly bill on average less than $10. The energy that supplies Windsource is 100% wind energy generated or purchased from Minnesota wind farms. A total of 19 wind turbines located in Pipestone and Dodge County in Minnesota currently supply the energy. The electricity is added to the Xcel Energy system for use across our service area in Minnesota. Although I'll pay more per 100 kW hour, I get a "No Fuel Cost" credit because unlike coal, oil and plutonium, the wind is free.
