Colleges’ Decision to Purchase Wind is Praised

An editorial in the August 12 Democrat and Chronicle praises the Colleges' decision to purchase wind as 5 percent of its power source. Titled “Into the Wind,” the editorial says the Colleges are setting an example for the private sector: “If America is to have a clean environment and an adequate, affordable energy supply, it must be the first of many.” State agencies already are under Gov. Pataki's executive order of 2001 to draw 10 percent of their electricity from wind, solar and other renewable energy sources by 2005 and 20 percent by 2010.
