April 15 -- Wind power is a win-win for consumers and the environment.
By the end of the year, U.S. wind plants will have reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 100 million metric tons, the equivalent of taking 17 million cars off the road.

As the lowest cost and most scalable zero-emission electricity source, wind energy plays a critical role in diversifying our energy mix. >>View Article
