Family hopes to start a trend with personal wind turbines
OCEAN CITY, Md. -- Mario Villa Santa will be catching the breeze in Ocean City. Authorities in the Maryland beach community are giving the Villa Santa family permission to install wind turbines on their Boardwalk home.
Villa Santa says the energy-producing turbines are silent and bird-friendly.
Officials tell a local paper the family will be guinea pigs for wind energy.
They hope other homeowners will follow.
