Oklahomans have wind energy at their back

BY KIRSTEN MCINTYRE Published: September 14, 2013

Oklahoma is one of the top states for wind energy, but we have only skimmed the surface of our potential. Our wind energy resources could provide more than 31 times the state's current electricity needs, according to the National Renewable Energy Lab.

With this in mind, wind not only has the power to provide a plentiful, sustainable energy resource to power our homes, but it will create a source of revenue as we sell wind energy to other states. This has the potential to lead to more Oklahoma jobs, economic growth and increased opportunity for communities throughout the state.

The wind energy industry is championing the cause of Oklahoma communities. Please join me in championing the cause of wind energy.

McIntyre is spokeswoman for Advancing Wind (www.AdvancingWind.com).
