Wind Power for America

Congress extended critical federal tax credits for wind power at the beginning of the year, thanks to the hard work of our staff, allies, and citizen supporters. Pollution-free wind energy now powers the equivalent of 13 million homes across the country and is growing - renewable energy accounted for nearly 50 percent of all newly installed power in the U.S. in 2012. Here, Environment Minnesota’s Michelle Hesterberg is joined by Duluth Mayor Don Ness and Ventera Winds President Joseph Woods to tout the environmental benefits of wind energy to local media.
