ABSTRACT
The article reports on the move of Indiana Municipal Power Agency (IMPA) to purchase energy resources from Crystal Lake Wind Energy Center in Hancock County, Iowa. According to the author, the company will buy approximately 50 megawatts which is sufficient to support 15,000 homes as well as reduce carbon dioxide emission by 150,000 tons a year. In addition, IMPA noted that the wind power can be used in December 2008 in 180 wind turbines.
