Vestas announces new contracts to supply wind turbines, and puts out a call for new workers at its Colorado blade and nacelle factories.
A Siemens factory in Fort Madison, Iowa, will be humming again, making the blades for 448 giant wind turbines.
Let’s demand a holiday miracle from Congress: swift action before the New Year to extend the federal tax credits for renewable energy.
