ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the power generated by windmills. It is informed that for more than 100 years, Montana farmers have used windmills to pump drinking water for man and beast. United Materials is planning to install 326 feet tall wind turbines that will produce nine megawatts of electricity-- enough to serve 4,000 to 4,500 homes. In a rather complex arrangement, United will not use the wind power directly. Instead it will sell the juice to Idaho Power as an added profit center for the company. United will be paid "seasonal rates" for its wind-generated power, and those funds will be applied toward traditionally generated electricity purchased in the open market.
