The high cost of electrifying rural areas is boosting interest in renewable energy among farmers and ranchers, opening up new opportunities for composites.

Farmers and ranchers are looking to the past to combat the growing cost of natural gas and stringing power lines to rural areas, one farmer having halved his electric bill by installing a 100-foot-tall wind turbine to generate electricity for his workshop. The new turbines are sleek, high-tech structures with glass and carbon-fiber blades, on show during a recent National Renewable Energy Laboratory workshop at the National Western Stock Show in Denver.
