On an upcoming episode of “Information Matrix” hosted by Laurence Fishburne, the topic will be the expansion of wind power, and the advantages and the challenges faced by this industry. Experts within the field will talk about the growth of wind power as a resource, and the new technologies driving the energy sector. Advantages of wind power include the fact that it is one of the lowest priced energy sources available, the fuel to operated wind turbines is free, and wind power creates jobs.

This clean energy source has an estimated economic impact of about $20 billion on the United States economy alone. At a time when people around the globe are concerned about air pollution, climate change, and finite amounts of fossil fuels, wind is a possible solution to avoid these problems in the future.

Disadvantages of wind power include the difficulty for wind to compete with more conventional fossil fuel energy sources in some parts of the country. Often, successful wind turbine sites are located in more remote parts of the landscape causing challenges in getting the power produced to population centers in an economic fashion. Often, landowners can earn greater profits by using their land for purposes other than wind turbines. This segment will look into all of these challenges to provide a clear view on the role of wind power for consumers.

Laurence Fishburne is an award winning actor who will introduce this episode “Information Matrix” about Expanding Wind Power which can be seen around the United States.
