I am excited to say that RNRG was recently invited to speak on a panel at the AWEA Wind Project Siting & Environmental Compliance Conference. The panel focused on how technology can be used to minimize the wildlife impacts of wind energy and explored what it takes to develop game-changing technologies and get them to market.
Around this time last year, Renewable NRG Systems set a goal for ourselves and our industry of eventually powering our planet with 100% renewable energy. When we put these words down as our corporate vision, we knew clearly that it was the right goal, but we honestly had no sense for how and when we might collectively get there.
As the election of 2012 fades into the past, issues that will face the Vermont Legislature (and other state legislatures) in 2013 are coming into focus. A critical and contentious one is wind power and the choices we make to deploy this technology as we move towards a diversified, low-cost...

How hard can it be to get a bus line to go up and down 40+ miles of country road twice a day? Hard enough! Making it happen on Route 116 required many Vermonters to go out on a limb, expand their understanding of their personal and institutional possibilities, and...
