Wind Energy is Slowly Edging out Fossil Fuels in Colorado

windcol.jpgThe LA Times reports that in Colorado, wind power is now actually cheaper than fossil fuel electricity. The same goes for Oklahoma and Austin, TX. The reason has more to do with skyrocketing costs of coal and gas plants, and less to do with newfound wind technology.
