Wind Power on Capitol Hill: Help us tell the wind story

1/22/19

There’s a new Congress in town, and that means there are a lot of members who haven’t heard the wind story yet. Now it’s our job to educate them, and we need your help...On March 5-6, AWEA will hold Wind Power on Capitol Hill, the year’s biggest opportunity to visit Washington, D.C. and meet your representatives in the House and Senate.


AWEA is the national trade association of the U.S. wind energy industry. We represent 1,000 member companies and over 114,000 jobs in the U.S. economy, serving as a powerful voice for how wind works for America. Members include global leaders in wind power and energy development, turbine manufacturing, and component and service suppliers. They gather each year at the Western Hemisphere’s largest wind energy event, the AWEA WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition, next in Denver, June 1-4, 2020. WINDPOWER 2020 will be housed within CLEANPOWER, the new exhibition hub for utility-scale renewable energy, bringing together wind power, solar power, and energy storage industries. Find information about wind energy on the AWEA website. Gain insight into industry issues on AWEA's blog, Into the Wind. And please join us on Facebook and follow @AWEA on Twitter and LinkedIn.
