Being in the midst of the dead of winter can make it feel like summer is a lifetime away. But August will be here before you know it, and that means it’s time to start thinking about #AmericanWindWeek 2020! We’re excited to celebrate all things wind for the fourth year in a row, this time August 16-22.
As a reminder, #AmericanWindWeek is a celebration of how wind works for our country. Elected officials and wind champions join forces at in-person events at wind farms and wind manufacturing facilities to show their support, and the conversation booms on social media. With your help, we achieved so much during #AmericanWindWeek 2019, including all the ways wind powers opportunity. Highlights included:
- 41 #AmericanWindWeek events across 21 states
- Over 175 local, state and federal lawmakers participated in #AmericanWindWeek 2019
