After years of promoting the benefits of wind, the Governors’ Wind Energy Coalition is changing its focus — just a bit. Now pairing its seven years of advocacy for wind with advocacy work for solar energy, the coalition hopes its new focus will be reflected in its new name — the Governors’ Wind and Solar Energy Coalition (GWSC).”This bipartisan governors’ coalition has been highly effective at getting policy results and have helped grow wind energy for nearly a decade,” said Tom Kiernan, CEO of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). “The governors’ decision to combine forces with solar energy reflects the economic and environmental value of diversifying our nation’s grid with clean, reliable renewable energy.”
