Red State Renewable Alliances Aims To Republicanize The Wind Industry

I want to apologize straight off the bat for using a term such as ‘Republicanize’ but it seems the most applicable term for what the Red State Renewable Alliance aims upon its launch last week. Its hope is to promote the wind energy industry and its capacity for creating jobs throughout states that are predominantly conservative in nature.

Quoting from the press release put out by the Red State Renewable Alliance via PR Newswire:

“The mission of the Red State Renewable Alliance is simple: to tell the full story of the success of clean renewable wind energy in traditionally conservative areas of the country and emphasize the importance of incorporating this resources as part of an ‘all of the above’ energy strategy in the United States.”

Red States to Hear about Wind Energy

For those who have been around the Republican traps for awhile now, the name John Feehery might be well known to you. Feehery is a well-known Republican strategist and the former spokesman for Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert and Majority Whip Tom DeLay. Feehery is also the Executive Director of the Red State Renewable Alliance, a firm believer in the wind energy industry, and he’s doing something about it.

“I am delighted to work hard to save jobs in the heartland of America, and to help preserve ‘all of the above’ as the energy policy of the United States.  Studies show that the wind energy production tax credit pays for itself, cuts utility costs for consumers and we all know that it is a clean energy resource,” said Feehery. “We at the Red State Renewable Alliance will tell the story of wind energy and the wind PTC in new and innovative ways, and we will convert the doubters out there.”

The Red State Renewable Alliance aims to promote wind energy and extend the wind energy production tax credit in an attempt to maintain America’s leading position in the wind industry, a position that has it representing more than 20% of the world’s installed wind power, with nearly 500 facilities across 44 states manufacturing for the wind industry.
