Senate Dem: save the US Postal Service with wind farms

foxnews.com 25 April 2012

As the potential collapse of the United States Postal Service looms on the horizon, one Senate Democrat has proposed an unusual plan to solve the crisis.

Senator Tom Carper (D-DE) looks to harvest the electricity that windmill farms produce in order to power a new fleet of battery-operated postal delivery vehicles, replacing the previous ’25 to 30 years old’ ‘dilapidated’ vehicles.

The Senator admits the idea is “out there” but concludes that “we need to be thinking boldly, and the postal service needs to do that”
