Description

The rapidly emerging renewable-energy industry has generated a lot of excitement in rural America. Ethanol plants, biodiesel refineries and wind farms are sprouting up across the Midwest as fast as investment bankers and pipe fitters will allow. The people who build and operate these renewable energy facilities are welcome additions to many rural communities. These renewable energy sources are land based. Farmers and rural communities are now as attuned to the Energy Bill as the Farm Bill.
