#iheartwind shows outpouring of love for clean energy

During February, over a million people saw the variety of reasons that Americans support clean, affordable, homegrown wind energy through #iheartwind.

The #iheartwind social media campaign generated 1,260 posts by 783 users (including 205 original posts), reaching nearly 1.23 million people and making almost 7.27 million impressions according to the social monitor Keyhole.

What are the top words that people think of when they think of wind energy? “clean” “renewable” “power” that doesn’t “spill” or “explode,” creates “jobs,” protects the “planet” and “future,” uses no “fuel,” and is here to “help” “today”!

Below are some of the top posts of the campaign, which reached a fever pitch around Valentine’s Day. Thanks to everyone who participated – we’ve highlighted even more posts at Storify.
