TV ads thank wind power champions in Colorado and Iowa

22 July 2014 by David Ward David Ward

When a good job is done, everyone deserves a hearty "thanks" for their work. That's what television ads running this week are doing for American wind power champions in Colorado and Iowa.

The videos (seen below) thank U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R) and U.S. Represenative Bruce Braley (D) of Iowa and U.S. Senator Mark Udall (D) of Colorado. 

Thanks to leaders like these, wind power supports up to 8,000 jobs in Iowa and Colorado combined and has attracted $14.3 billion in capital investment to these states’ local economies. 

Their leadership has also helped American wind power become the mainstream source of electricity it is today and one of the biggest, fastest, cheapest ways to reduce carbon emissions while creating good-paying jobs and saving consumers money. Wind power attracts as much as $25 billion a year in private investment and supports as many as 85,000 jobs.

The Colorado television ad features wind technology instructor Shawn Lamb of Aurora, Colorado, who trains students seeking to join the wind and renewable energy workforce. Both of the Iowa television ads feature Rob Hach of Anemometry Specialists in Alta, Iowa. Anemometry Specialists helps provide their customers with technology capable of measuring where wind power is the strongest.
