Saves our resources
Utilizing renewable energy sources also generates state water consumption savings for Kansas.
In 2018, 4.7 billion gallons of water was saved, the equivalent to 35 billion water bottles. Using resources in the right ways positively impacts Kansans in more ways than one.
After agriculture, traditional power generation is the nation’s second largest use of water. Wind and solar power is an infinite fuel that generates electricity without using water. For example, producing the same amount of electricity can take about 600 times more water with nuclear power than wind, and about 500 times more water with coal than wind.
Helps Protect Clean Water and Clean Air
Wind turbines produce clean power with no emissions of any kind, which is healthier for all Americans.
