Articles about wind power in the Sun Journal, most recently the Prudhoe Bay issue, have caught my attention.

America’s need to build and produce alternate forms of energy becomes more and more apparent; power generated through the use of sun and wind must continue to be expanded.

Not so long ago, that was not the case.

I was denied fire and liability insurance on a well-constructed camp located in an unorganized territory in western Maine. Since power lines were too distant, I chose solar power for my electrical needs. I was denied insurance coverage because I didn’t have a traditional power source.

That type of action is not happening today. It is gratifying to see that America is finally awakening to sources of power other than oil.
