Job fairs to be held in Pueblo and Colorado Springs this week. The company has signed an agreement to supply towers for a number of non-Vestas wind power projects during the next two years.16Jan2013 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
I strongly believe that any national energy policy we develop should reflect the success Colorado has had as an all-of-the-above energy state. Great states make things – and great countries produce their own energy. Wind power is taking us closer to the goal of a clean energy future and a strengthened manufacturing sector.15Jan2013 | admin | 0 comments | Continued

The report is valuable for decision-makers and utility executives because it compares estimates across six renewable energy technologies and unifies assumptions and methods. It shows the achievable energy generation of a particular technology given resource availability – solar, wind, geothermal availability, etc.31Jul2012 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
For the past few weeks, I have taken to the U.S. Senate floor to convince my colleagues to save a bright spot in American manufacturing jobs: the wind industry. The wind energy sector employs 75,000 hard-working Americans in well-paying jobs – 6,000 jobs in Colorado alone. Those jobs have a tremendous positive ripple effect in their communities that extends to our economic and energy health.3Jul2012 | admin | 0 comments | Continued
