Show 350,000 Minnesotans how you are helping the State use Wind Energy to grow business, jobs, and a clean, fuel-independent future!

This year, we’re bringing a Yes In My Community! message to the 350,000 State Fair goers who will visit The Wind Energy Center, August 25 - September 5, 2011, in The Eco Experience at the Minnesota State Fair. Our interactive exhibit will emphasize how Wind is a cost effective, reliable, clean resource that provides economic development, jobs and revenue to Minnesota citizens.
