Title: A Feasibility Study on the Application of Wind Power using Linear Programming
Authors: Wong, Bryant
Issue Date: 15 Jan 2014
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Abstract: Entering an era when the world's supply of fossil fuels are rapidly being exhausted, the American lifestyle faces the danger of being radically altered unless alternate energy sources are found. For Hawaii, the feeling of urgency should be even greater. Hawaii, isolated by a stretch of over 2000 miles of water, is the most vulnerable of all the States. Her lifestyle hinges precariously on those precious air-borne and sea-borne "life lines". Her economy is addicted to a source of energy of which she has no natural reserves. Instead of fostering upon self-sufficiency aecause of her isolation, Hawaii has grown even more dependent upon outside ties.
