excerpted from the New York Mills Herald

Investment in renewable energy is a worldwide tend, as well as in the East Otter Tail farm and lake country.

In New York Mills, a local firm, Residential Wind Power, Inc., is selling and installing wind energy systems designed fore the home and property owner.

In Edna Township, a hog producer is installing a unit from Fergus Falls-based Vinco with enough capacity to power most of the electrical demand in a 1,100 hog barn.

A local hobby farm owner installed a windmill and generator that are producing about 650 kilowatts per month. The farm needs 500 kw of electricity a month, and can sell back the remaining 150 to the power company.
