The Cooperative owns two wind turbines: the Pigeon Creek Wind Turbine, south of Quincy Regional Airport and the Randy D. Rigg Memorial Wind Turbine (formerly named the Brown County Wind Turbine), east of Mt. Sterling.
The Cooperative’s wind turbines will supplement current power supplies and act as a hedge against rising fuel costs. Wind is one of the best renewable energy sources because it produces no pollution, no combustion and no byproduct that would harm the environment. However, wind is not a good, single source of energy because it works only when the wind blows. With the help of financing, adding wind as a portion of our power portfolio makes sense. The wind turbine will help maintain Adams Electric’s power cost and reduce the Cooperative’s amount of electricity generated by other fuels.
