The wind blows there 70 percent of the time."

"That is, during peak hours (7 a.m. - 9 p.m.) they'll be paid 9.2 cents per kilowatt hour. During off - peak hours, they'll be paid 7.47 cents a kilowatt #alternative_energy #apple_seed #energy_efficient #greeen_energy #HI #Lanai #Lanai_City #LNYsketch #windmills
