Default Farming the wind

Maui and the Big Island are leading the push to harness the wind to produce some of the electricity needed by residents. This will help reduce slightly each County's dependence on fossil fuel.

The latest project, at Ukumehame near Lahaina, will cost $65 million and provide 30 wind-powered turbines which will produce about 9% of the energy requirements on Maui.

If this project is successful, will someone step up and put something like this in on Oahu, too?
