The Wind Energy Center is an interactive, museum-quality display within the Eco Experience at the Minnesota State Fair, in partnership with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Developed and presented by Windustry and partners, it teaches hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans each year about our great wind resource and how wind energy can provide both environmental and economic benefits to Minnesotans. 2021 will be the 15th year of the Wind Energy Center, inspiring visitors to actively support and participate in small, midsize, and large wind energy development in Minnesota.
If you'd like to volunteer at the Wind Energy Center at the 2021 MN State Fair, please fill out the volunteer form.
