Thanks to the 90 volunteers who signed up! Because of your passion for wind energy and willingness to donate your time, the Wind Energy Center was a huge success! We are continually amazed by what a wealth of information our volunteers provide and we have learned just as much from you as you did from us. The overall quality and dedication of this year's volunteers was incredible!
We couldn't have done it without our partners! For information on how to become a Partner of the 2010 Wind Energy Center,
