Colorado Wind Brings More Jobs

For Immediate Release

Colorado’s windy plains continue to be a cash crop, now for green collar jobs. Gov. Ritter’s leadership in building the New Energy Economy resulted in today’s announcement by Vestas that they are bringing more jobs to the state.  

Colorado has always been an energy leader.  By investing now in our abundant renewable resources such as wind and solar, Colorado will continue to be leading clean energy provider for decades to come. Vestas’ expanding investment in Colorado shows the success of that plan.

Gov. Ritter has made Colorado a model for providing sensible solutions to meeting energy needs, and it’s paid off. Plugging in to the homegrown power of our windy plains and sunny skies has brought clean power, economic growth, and energy security to Colorado.
