Doyle clearly states support for wind energy industry

Posted on December 20, 2007. Filed under: Wind |


In the 2007 New North Report to the Community, Governor Jim Doyle gave the wind energy industry a strong statement of support:

As Governor, one of my top priorities is ensuring Wisconsin remains one of the best places in the country to live, work, and raise a family. Here in Wisconsin, we enjoy a high quality of life, a pristine natural environment, top-notch public schools, technical colleges and universities, and a diverse economy with opportunities for businesses and job seekers alike.

Over the last several years, we’ve worked hard to create a business climate in this state that supports innovative businesses, attracts businesses to Wisconsin, and provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to get their ideas off the ground and competing in the global marketplace. . . .

The wind energy industry in the New North is playing a large role in making Wisconsin a national leader in renewable energy. With a strong manufacturing industry, wind energy-specific college programs, and transportation infrastructure, Wisconsin is one of the leading states in the country in developing the wind energy industry. . . .


Full text of governor’s statement:

As Governor, one of my top priorities is ensuring Wisconsin remains one of the best places in the country to live, work, and raise a family. Here in Wisconsin, we enjoy a high quality of life, a pristine natural environment, top-notch public schools, technical colleges and universities, and a diverse economy with opportunities for businesses and job seekers alike.

Over the last several years, we’ve worked hard to create a business climate in this state that supports innovative businesses, attracts businesses to Wisconsin, and provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to get their ideas off the ground and competing in the global marketplace.

Our challenge now is to build on our successes and take the next steps to grow our economy. With organizations like the New North, we must work from region to region and develop efforts tailored to local communities — the businesses, the hardworking citizens and families, and the area’s natural setting and resources.

Wisconsin also has an opportunity to become a leader in renewable energy. Just recently, I joined with other Midwestern leaders to sign a Greenhouse Gas Reduction Accord that will promote renewable energy and energy efficiency, and create targets and programs to reduce the Midwest’s carbon footprint. This accord will reduce Wisconsin’s dependence on foreign oil, protect our precious natural resources, and reduce carbon pollution emissions that cause global warming. It will keep Wisconsin at the forefront of the renewable energy industry, keep our economy growing strong, and attract new businesses to our state.

The wind energy industry in the New North is playing a large role in making Wisconsin a national leader in renewable energy. With a strong manufacturing industry, wind energy-specific college programs, and transportation infrastructure, Wisconsin is one of the leading states in the country in developing the wind energy industry.

Wisconsin is well-positioned to continuing growing its economy. As governor, I will remain committed to building on our strengths like manufacturing and agriculture, attracting new businesses, developing new industries and creating jobs, and making sure Wisconsin remains the best place in the country to do business and raise a family.
