If you follow environmental issues, there’s no doubt your e-mail inbox has been filled with messages in recent days and weeks. It’s Earth Day, Earth Month, green season.

Aging office buildings, for example, would be converted to residential apartments, which tend to use energy at night and even out energy demand during the day. And that residential energy could come solely from locally generated wind power.
