Juhl Wind, Inc.
TWST: How would you describe the current demand you see for wind power, and what indicators do you use to forecast demand over the three to five years?
Mr. Juhl: I think that the demand for renewable energy development in this country is very strong. We have a need for more and more energy every day, and the options to produce it are limited, given that it's very difficult and expensive to build the big power plants and transmission lines. There are a variety of social and economic limitations that we see right now in development of conventional power plants and getting power lines built. With the technical advancement we are seeing in wind, solar, storage and smart grid technologies, the distributed renewable energy sector will play a major role in our energy mix.
TWST: Each form of renewable energy has its different advantages. You're in wind, so tell us what you believe are the particular advantages of wind as compared with other forms of alternative energy.
