Wind Energy In Connecticut

Good Morning Everyone!!

The article that I am sharing with you all is something I am both very excited and passionate about. On this past Monday, September 15th, BNE Energy was FINALLY cleared approval by the Supreme Court of Connecticut for the construction of six commercial wind turbines to be built in Colebrook CT. This is such a huge step in history for the state of Connecticut as Wind Colebrook will be the first ever commercial wind project to produce energy for the grid in our state.

My Uncle Paul Corey, who is quoted in this article is one of the two men who make up BNE Energy and I have personally watched him work his butt off constantly since 2006 when BNE first developed their idea. This is something our state should be very excited about. Wind energy is one of the SAFEST and CLEANEST forms of energy along with solar panels.

Some of you at this point may be thinking to yourself… “Ya, this is cool and all, but how does this have anything at all to do with digital media??”

Well, the picture shown in the article is of three wind turbines on the Colebrook South property. Now, if the approval was just passed on Monday, how was this photograph taken? CLEARLY the turbines are not built yet.. right?

My Uncle’s company, along with many commercial companies our there has a commissioned artist. With the use of digital media, specifically photoshop (I would imagine,) this artist rendered the three turbines onto the property. What we see is exactly what this project will look like once the turbines go up mid 2015. There is no doubt in my mind that the rendered images and visuals put together by the artist had an impact on this Supreme Court case!

  1. First of all, kudos to this artist – that is one seamless Photoshop job! Carolyn, I think it’s really awesome that you shared this because its a great example of digital art being used to practically impact law and policy, and that’s something a lot of people don’t think of in regards to it on an everyday basis, at least I know I didn’t.

    Also, wind power is super fascinating and efficient and green, so this makes me happy for CT.
