Controversies about green energy have arisen in many localities in the world, but here in Pflugerville, the possibility of Pflugerville becoming the green energy capital of Texas has recently been noted. There is an article reporting mention of this possibility in the Austin American-Statesman that also appeared in The Pflugerville Pflag. The experience with green energy in Pflugerville , however, is as yet limited.
The use of wind farms as an energy source has been receiving some extremely harsh criticism.
A recent example can be found in “The Winds of Change” by Matt Ridley, Spectator.co.uk, March 3, 2012.
