BREAKING: Louisiana Wind Announces Development Project in Press Release here:
LW Press Release Final 5-17
Wind power is a sustainable source of energy that has been harnessed for thousands of years to help civilizations make use of their natural resources. With wind power becoming more common throughout the country and in neighboring states, Louisiana is next to tap this endless supply of clean energy.
Wind energy is the fastest-growing source of electricity production in the world representing over 45% of all new generating capacity between 2008 and 2015. The U.S added more wind in 2014 than any other power source!
Our partners represent the most advanced and professional development team in the country, and together we employ a community-friendly and “open book” approach to wind energy projects. Louisiana Wind is proud to bring this important resource to our great state.
Wind Energy Means Economic Development for Louisiana
According to the American Wind Energy Association, investment in wind power is an investment in jobs, including jobs in operations and maintenance, construction, manufacturing and many support sectors. It also presents opportunities throughout the supply chain for companies to get involved.
States with a strong manufacturing background, like Louisiana, will be able to take advantage of growth in wind power by retooling facilities to supply to the wind industry. In addition, wind power projects produce lease payments for farmers and increase the tax base of rural communities. Since 2010, wind power has created thousands of jobs across the country.
