  • Wind power is real power. Germany and Europe have made significant investments in wind, where it can supply as much as 40% of electrical demands (peak power). Using methane as backup / peaking power and wind as a primary source. The cost of wind makes it very attractive – new GE wind turbines with 3.6 MWhr sell for 3.6 million dollars, or roughly $1 a watt, and at least 5 to 10 times cheaper than solar installations.

    Cleantech is the ‘technology side’ of green jobs. It would include developing energy efficiency technology, but not replacing the insulation itself. It is the development of new technology as much as the manufacturing of it. It includes environmental technology, and especially remediation of contaminated soil and water. These jobs generally require more education than traditional green jobs.
