Udall: Turbine Order Shows How Wind Energy Revitalizes Colorado Manufacturing

Posted: Monday, April 8, 2013

Mark Udall, who championed the successful, bipartisan reauthorization of the Production Tax Credit for wind energy last year, welcomed news today that Colorado factories will manufacture wind turbines and components for the Blackspring Ridge Wind Project near Alberta, Canada.  This large order underscores the job-creating benefits of a strong wind-energy industry in Colorado and for our country.

"This large turbine order, evidence of the long-term benefits of Made-in-America manufacturing, underlines what I have been saying for years: Wind energy powers our economy," Udall said.  "It is clear evidence that investments in energy security are good for our economy and Colorado workers."

Udall recently visited the National Wind Technology Center in Boulder County, which is operated by the National Renewable Energy Lab in Golden. His visit came as part of his statewide energy tour and highlighted the role wind energy plays in creating Colorado jobs and powering the nation.
