Wind Week

A 150-foot-long wind turbine blade positioned on the northwest corner of the Iowa State Fairgrounds was signed by Governor Kim Reynolds who proclaimed this “wind week” in Iowa.

Iowa Economic Development Authority director Debi Durham says one-third of all consumers make purchasing decisions based on a company’s environmental and social impact.

By 2020, Iowa wind turbines are projected to account for 40 percent of the energy produced in the state.
