Most States Could Generate All Their Electricity With Renewables

new study shows potential of wind power and other renewables is huge

According to a new study by the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), wind turbines on the continental US could generate 37 PWh a year. What NREL  researchers found: "current wind technology deployed in non-environmentally protected areas could generate 37,000,000 gigawatt-hours of electricity per year." So exclude national parks, wilderness and wetlands, lakes and ponds and high population areas, mount wind turbines on the rest and the US could generate twelve times the energy that we're currently using solely through wind power.

I am pro wind technology...my parents live in North Eastern Illinois where a couple hundred of new turbines have been erected. The area is also pro wind technology, but why is the area fighting it? The turbines are in Illinois, but then why is the power going to Florida? I would be against it to if I was not having any benefit from it and had to look at them everyday.
