In recent years the business place has changed almost beyond recognition.

Many economic changes have taken place but, retrofitting business solutions to the problems created by fast -moving technology is not always simple and, quite often, sound planning isn’t possible due to the current speed of technological advances. Even relatively simple businesses such as plumbers, architects, accountants and web design agencies find it difficult to keep up with the pace of change.

Simply put: Technology has surged beyond our wildest dreams.

Years ago windmills of wood and metal powered the well to bring up enough water for the cattle, Saturday night radio programs, and occasionally the family had electric light, if they had an electric lamp.

Now, a wind powered generator standing two hundred feet above the surface of the earth pulls enough to power an entire community.

Four of them provide power for our town. More wind generators are being positioned south of town, on the hill.

Enough wind generators to keep us cool all winter long – I’m afraid – if the wind blows from the south. Stulp farms, home of John Stulp, former Prowers County Commissioner is placing 50 of the gigantic towers on his place, just south of the Lamar city limits.

They will be visible from Spreading Antler Golf Course, from Lamar Community College, and various other land marks across southeastern Colorado.Located on the highway between Springfield and Lamar, Colorado, Emick Ranch is home to a hundred of the towering wind absorbing giants.

The prairies have long been renowned as a great place for raising rattlesnakes, cattle, wheat, and sagebrush, now our fame is growing, over two hundred feet tall to include Wind Powered General Electric Generators. I love it. The new wave of the nation, cartwheeling three armed giants facing the sunset, whipping the prairies dry, and capturing the energy long been lost as the winds blow across Colorado.Turbines the size of a semi-truck sit atop the towers, spinning blades the length of four cars, and collecting energy. If you ever get a chance to see the new giants of the prairie – you won’t be disappointed.

Nowadays global warming and the scarcity of fossil fuels are rarely out of the media Some people carry on hoping that government will come up with some sort of solution, others don’t really care and then a few people are wondering, “how can I help reduce global warming?”

Well, solar and wind power solutions can not only save you a great deal of money on your energy bills but can also help in the effort to save the environment.

With the way the energy crisis is growing, soon the fossil fuels that we rely on will be gone or so overpriced, that very few people will be able to afford it. Researchers have been creating new and innovating ways to create energy out of the natural resources that Mother Nature provides.

Even though the wind has been a source of power for hundreds of years, it is not until recent decades that it was considered on a large scale. There are many different types of natural resources that researchers have found promising, however, wind power is the most promising and least expensive renewable power source.
