We’re halfway through the second annual #AmericanWindWeek! In more than 30 towns and cities across the country, communities and business leaders have gathered to celebrate a future powered by thin air. From North Dakota to Florida, and Oregon through New Jersey, Americans are celebrating the economic opportunities, job creation, energy independence and clean air created by wind power.
The conversation has boomed on social media too. Here are some favorites from the first half of #AmericanWindWeek. Make sure to join the conversation!
America’s wind industry supports more than 100,000 American jobs at over 500 facilities across the country. Wind energy is an important part of America’s all-of-the-above energy future. #NewEnergyRealism #AmericanWindWeek pic.twitter.com/S9pgGzCY24

We Iowans have a long, proud history of producing the food that feeds Americans across the country. And, now we’re leading in the production of a new crop: wind power. https://t.co/Jd3Pc1GEjh
