Two local businesses are pushing to build wind turbines and solar panels to generate electricity in a Mount Airy park, acting upon an idea proposed by a college environmentalist last summer.The owners of Freedom Energy Solutions in Westminster and Grey Goes Green in Middletown also want to use Windy Ridge Park as an environmental campus, where students could learn about renewable energy sources.Tim Richards, a Haverford College junior who grew up in Mount Airy, originated the idea of erecting wind turbines in the Frederick County park, which recently opened to the public. Wind energy could provide the community with an alternative to buying from power companies, said Richards, founder of the grass-roots group Citizens for a Green Mount Airy.
