AWEA's Gramlich: Wind an economic success story for Iowa
Wind has become a key player in Iowa's economic success and continues to be an important part of its energy mix, writes American Wind Energy Association Senior Vice President of Government and Public Affairs Rob Gramlich. "Federal policy has been an important driver of this success. It has spurred American innovation and improved domestic manufacturing, which have helped cut the price consumers pay for wind energy by two-thirds over six years," he writes.
