Alternative Energy

The Sun's ExploreHoward blog has a nice little feature on HoCo's first wind turbine, a 50-foot job that Brent Rutley, owner of the Just This Side of Paradise farm in Woodbine says saves him about $100 a month in energy costs.

According to Rutley, the turbine combined with the 22 solar panels that the farm added last fall save him an average of about $320 each month.

Rutley, who also owns the farm’s parent company Capitol City Contractors, paid $15,000 for the turbine and expects to receive almost $10,000 in state and federal alternative energy-related tax credits, incentives and grants.
