Wind Power. Partnership Power.

So pleased to learn states are working together to create a unified effort to attract wind power. It was back in the mid-90's during the first wave of brownfield redevelopments, I first learned of the opportunities presented by local governments coordinating financial incentives in lieu of vying against one another to attract developers to clean up and redevelop brownfield sites. It made little sense for counties and states to compete against one another for the same prospective purchaser. These coordinated efforts can be complex but in the long run, so much more efficient from a tax payer and private sector perspective. It's one of those premises that has stood the test of time.


I look forward to seeing the trio of North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland succeed. Strategies like these are so essential to meeting our climate goals.
