Texas: help stop anti-wind bill SB 277 and keep wind power booming
SB 277 has no technical or economic justification. It denies local control and ignores a federal process that already works. If passed, the bill would block wind projects within 25 miles of a military base from receiving economic development tax credits that are used by many other kinds of businesses across Texas.
Wind power strengthens America
American wind power is growing quickly. Every state is home to a wind project and/or a wind energy-related manufacturing facility, and wind power supports 100,000 direct jobs across all 50 states.

Help create 300,000 more jobs and keep factories open
The wind industry puts Americans to work. Right now over 21,000 U.S. workers in over 500 factories in 43 states make a majority of American wind farm components right here in the USA. We need to keep these factories open. Ask lawmakers to support the stable investment policies we need in 2017 to keep creating good jobs.
