Wind energy can deliver big economic boost

Dear Editor,

Indiana has a valuable natural resource that’s ready for harvest. Wind energy can deliver a big economic boost to communities – creating jobs, paying millions in property taxes and leases to landowners, and generating clean, homegrown electricity from a source that will never run out.

While there are plenty of Hoosiers who see the benefits of wind, some have questioned whether it’s right for them. When changes to our communities are proposed, we want to be sure they’re in harmony with a safe place to live.

Let me set the record straight.
