Atlantic City has become one of three spots in New Jersey proposed to begin using power generated by wind. Community Energy Inc. out of Wayne Pa. Is working with Atlantic City Utilities Authority to put up 3 to 4 wind towers in Northwest Atlantic City. This 4.5 to7.5-megawatt wind farm would be located at the sewage plant off Route 30. Community Energy is in line for a $1.7 million in BPU grants as long as they are online by the end of 2003. Four windmills in Atlantic City collective enough energy to meet the needs of 2,000 homes. But ACUA is working on buying the energy directly from Community Energy at a discounted rate and using it to run the pumps and other machines. They would also collect money from the leasing of the property and say in turn it may lower sewage taxes.
