Alabama is RICH in solar energy, but dirt poor in wind energy. Still, many people, especially those that live on a shore of one of Alabama’s lakes, think there is plenty of wind where they live to produce power. I get the question so often that I dedicated a page to Solar vs Wind in Alabama. From that page, you can link to the renewable energy laboratory’s solar and wind energy resource maps. Even a cursory view of these maps will fully demonstrate the truth of the opening statement of this blog.
