I picked this up from another list but thought it might be of interest to
some on the Homestead list. Makes me kinda proud of my home state that
they'd take an advanced stand on alternative energy production including

Vern in the Ozarks (where there's not enough general wind energy to
generate usuable amounts of electric power)
