Study: wind power makes the government more money than it costs

We've been fans of wind power here at DVICE for a while now; after all, is there a more abundant or free source of energy than wind? Why not harness it for good? And now, the government has even fewer excuses to invest in this form of renewable energy. Why? Because investing in wind power actually makes more money than it costs!

In fact, last year alone wind farms added $250 million to the US Treasury thanks to the taxes involved with them and the taxes on the new jobs created by them. If congress approved more funding for wind farms, it would only bring in more money for themselves. More money and renewable energy — what's not to like here?
