We are writing in reference to the headline article in the April 6 News-Democrat about the hydro electric project at Lock No. 1 on the Kentucky River. As Gary Burbank would say, “Wake up, America!” This is green power. This is very much a project we should be supporting. It would be great to capture every bit of mechanical energy possible from all our dams. We would get power and not consume any of our earth’s natural resources, with no pollution, and affect the community very little.
