WTOC on wind energy on Tybee Island: rally tonight 2012-08-31

This morning WTOC interviewed Paul Wolff, Tybee City Council, and Karen Grainey, Coastal Chapter, Georgia Sierra Club, Wind Works for Jobs for Georgians about Wind Works: for Jobs, for Georgians, 6-9 PM tonight 31 August 2012 Tybee Pier.

Paul Wolff said we have a potential for 14.5 gigawatts off the Georgia coast, without interfering with shipping lanes or the ocean ecology. He noted big wind turbines need everything down to ball bearings, much of which can be (and some already is) produced in Georgia. LAKE blog readers know Paul Wolff as somebody who has put his money where his mouth is, with solar on his roof.

Here’s the video. Also PR from SACE and a facebook event.
