Windward Iowa Promotes Wind Energy
CEDAR RAPIDS (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
Windward Iowa announced its official launch this morning at Kirkwood Community College.
The organization joins activists, vendors, and industry leaders to push for more wind projects in Iowa and the Midwest.
Members say wind energy production helps local economies and environments, and Iowa is the perfect place for it to expand.
"We have the capability to produce 40 times more wind energy than we're producing today because of the wind. After this winter, I'd say it's 100 times more," said Craig Lang, Windward Iowa board member.
Right now, 25% of Iowa's energy comes from wind.
