    CALL TO IOWA VOTERS TO DEFEND WIND

    Tell candidates why wind power matters

    Thomas A. Wind, January 13, 2016 (Des Moines Register)

    “…Sen. Ted Cruz claimed (Jan. 6), he’s passionate about supporting Iowa’s farmers, but coming out against common-sense, successful federal tax credits that incentivize new wind farms is one big way Cruz leaves us hanging…Iowa farmers host enough wind turbines to produce the highest percentage of [wind energy-generated electricity] in the country, with more than 28 percent…coming from wind power…Farmers and communities throughout the state have benefited from this enormously…Wind farm development has brought $10 billion of capital investment into the state, and by 2020 wind farms could create $49 million in annual property tax revenue…[to] build new schools, fix roads and improve healthcare facilities…

    “Even better, wind power has become our new drought-resistant cash crop. Every year, rain or shine, Iowa’s farmers receive millions in land lease payments, and that number could grow as high as $55 million by 2030…[There are also] 12 factories in Iowa that build wind-related parts and materials, and wind supports as many as 7,000 jobs…Iowa’s caucuses are just a few weeks away. We need to make sure we know who really supports us…” click here for more
