The article presents the author's insights on the growth of wind and photovoltaic energy in Indiana despite weak state policies. According to him, the wind energy brought about a gigawatt (GW) of energy in just five years. He also mentions that the distributed generation in the state is limited to those who adopted the technology. He added that advocates of the technology have organized the Indiana Renewable Energy Association to support of renewable energy development.
