The Midwest of the United States is the Saudi Arabia of wind!
Meaning, the wind resource in the Upper Midwest is so plentiful as to compare with oil resources in the Middle East.
Adding 900 wind turbines, each over 50 stories tall and generating 2,900 MW, requires an investment of $3.26 billion.
This clean energy will extend to Minneapolis with plans to extend transmission lines into Illinois and Indiana.
Construction of the wind turbines will produce more than 400 jobs. Thereafter, 20 permanent jobs paying over $23 million in wages and benefits will be added.
Wind power is a reliable renewable resource and creating such generation will add jobs, tax benefits, and clean energy.
