About The Power of Wind
At Power of Wind, we know that America doesn’t need to wait to find a clean way to power our country. Wind power can offer our families healthy, affordable energy right here, right now. So why are our leaders sticking to the “energy policy as usual” that unfairly favors fossil fuels and limits wind power’s growth? Because they need to hear from you.
Power of Wind is leading a community movement for the smarter, fairer energy policies we need to unleash the promise of wind energy. Through our smart advocacy campaigns and access to wind energy experts at the American Wind Energy Association, we have the power to get our message heard loud and clear by elected leaders: The time is now for a cleaner, more affordable energy future.
Our vision is an America where every family has an easy, affordable way to power their home with clean energy. If we can maintain our momentum, wind power has the potential to make that vision a reality.
Our goal is to enable the nation to obtain 10% of its electricity from wind by 2020, 20% by 2030, and 35% by 2050. No technological breakthroughs are necessary to make this happen—and benefits include cutting greenhouse gas emissions, promoting energy security, saving consumers money, and creating hundreds of thousands of new American jobs.
Hundreds of thousands of supporters are pushing for the smarter, fairer energy policies we need to unleash the promise of wind energy. Meet a few of them and see why they care about and fight for American wind power:
