Can we mix agriculture and green energy to save space?

    Yes. This has been done very successfully with wind power throughout the midwestern and western US. The total space on the ground required for a turbine isn’t actually that much, so farmers can continue to use most of their land to grow food, while at the same time generating renewable electricity from the wind above their fields.

    In some states the farmers lease the pieces of land to wind power companies, in others wind mills are actually erected and run by farmer co-ops. Either way installing wind turbines is usually popular with farmers since it means they’ll have more money to help make ends meet.
