Wind Energy Benefits

Wind energy is the fastest growing segment of all renewable energy sources. Although Germany and Europe lead in energy produce from wind energy, the practices are increasing across the United States. Wind energy can be used in nearly 50% of US territory, including West Texas. Since 2005, giant wind turbines have been installed along Interstate 20 on both sides of the highway, and encompassed thousands of acres of West Texas.

While changeability of wind speed and high construction cost are seen as negatives of wind energy, the benefits far outweigh the negatives. Wind energy is favorable to climate conditions and its benefits incldue:

• Wind energy as a renewable energy source.
• Wind energy as a pollution-free energy source.
• Wind energy as a very abundant energy source in many parts of the USA.
• Wind energy is widely used to generate electricity.
• Wind energy is the most used renewable energy source.
• Wind energy is one of the lowest-priced renewable energy sources.
• Wind energy has no fuel expenditures.
• Wind energy could really increase energy diversity and improve the security of energy supply.

With high working reliability, no fuel costs and no pollution, wind energy is proving to be promising today—and will surely be an important energy source in years to come. Abilene High Lift provides installation and maintenance on windmills so that we can have cleaner air and a healthier environment.

Texas is in the process of starting multi-billion dollar wind energy projects to West Texas, the DFW area, Austin, San Antonio, and many more areas of Texas. To read more about these projects, visit and
