Local Tech Experts Say Wind Power is Growing

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Locals who work in the renewable energy sector say it's an exciting time to invest in the technology. Lethbridge College is looking to expand its wind turbine technician training program, while the new premier has said she's committed to making Alberta a leader in renewable energy technology.

"It's a great, great opportunity for clean energy and the no pollution bonus that comes with it," said Kris Hodgson, who speaks for the recently-renamed International Wind Energy Academy at Lethbridge College. "It's really a chance to have rural southern Alberta become successful competing against large oil and gas centers like Calgary and Edmonton."

Farmers can make up to $15,000 per year per wind turbine on their property. Hodgson said it's those financial benefits that are the real driver for anyone looking to invest in a small or industrial wind turbine. "It's a great way to diversify income," he said. "Especially when there are tough times."
