Somebody Put on Their Thinking Cap This Morning

I know many of you may not care about this information, or find it interesting, but I do (and it's my blog, so hah!).

Sustainablog has once again shown up on my Google Reader with an interesting article: "How Not to Lose that Wind Power Feelin'." In the article they say that Xcel Energy is planning to test two 80-ton batteries in an effort to capture and save up wind-power energy and use it when wind speed has significantly dropped and electrical flow is uneven. If these batteries work, a major argument against wind power may stop forever; inconsistent wind flow doesn't have to mean inconsistent electricity!
