InTech;Nov2007, Vol. 54 Issue 11, p74
The author reveals some of the myths about power. He explains that wind turbines sell to municipalities by emphasizing that the operating cost is less than the cost per kilowatt-hour from fossil fuel fired power plants. He looks at the trend toward electric or battery-powered vehicles. He argues against the idea that ethanol is used to replace oil.
