University of Mississippi participants will provide wind energy guide for economic projects


A meeting held by DeKalb County has encouraged the University of Missouri to set future guideposts for the development of better and more efficient projects in harnessing wind energy.

The gathering was held in Maysville for more than two hours where 65 participants gathered and discussed the issues. The participants made small groups to discuss the issues in the meet. DeKalb County possesses many wind farms that harness energy. One of the farms is made by NextEra Energy Resources, A Florida-based company, has created its landmark here which also resulted in a huge controversy from the very beginning.

As per the participants in the University Extension, the meeting was focused on finding economic ways to generate wind energy and what this energy is doing for the community. The meeting also inferred that a resource guidance will be provided to conduct surveys. The guide will also aid the other counties present in Mississippi communities to aid in developing similar projects. The guiding body will also assess the roles other communities are playing in conducting such projects to make them more economic and feasible.

The information availed from the surveys will be very useful for the governments while considering renewable energy sources. The Extension is welcoming all the ideas from the students. The projects and surveys can be submitted anytime as there is no last date. These reports can bring utmost convenience as the county will get a good guidance while filling out business landscapes and properties to set the farms. The contribution from the university students will be very helpful to design a better energy generation plan.
