Recent advances in wind energy technology have made wind energy an economic and reliable source of power throughout the Southeast. The first coastal wind farm to be built in the Southeast, called the Amazon Wind Farm North Carolina – Desert Wind, started producing power in 2017 in Pasquotank and Perquimans Counties, near Elizabeth City.
The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) visited the wind farm in July 2018 to learn from local officials how the wind farm is impacting the community. Take a look at the videos below to hear what different members of the community had to say.
