Wind Energy Creating Jobs!!! – Xcel Energy Blog

How great is it when one good thing creates a bunch of other good things? According to national averages provided by the American Wind Energy Association, the 201-megawatt Nobles Wind Farm in southeastern Minnesota created approximately:

•    200 construction jobs
•    13 long-term operation and maintenance jobs
•    400 manufacturing jobs
•    Approximately $600,000 in annual farmer/landowner revenue

And that’s just one wind farm. Others are already completed, and more are in various stages of construction.wind power

During our country’s current economic challenges, figures like that provide some good news, but they tend to get overlooked among the bad news. I guarantee you those 613 people and the wind farm landowners (mostly farmers) aren’t overlooking them.
