To see what this growth in clean-energy source means in real jobs, take a look at this NYT slideshow: http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2010/02/21/business/0221-BACKDROP_index.html?emc=eta3

Pictured in the show are several of those former Maytag employees that are now building either wind blades at TPI or towers at Trinity. These two companies alone are now employing over 775 individuals in the region.

Last week we also celebrated the opening of the NextEra gear repair facility in the Iowa Innovation Gateway region located in Story City, Iowa which will repair the heart of the turbines.

For the Iowa Innovationg Gateway region and all of Iowa, this growth in clean-energy is very real and allows us to leverage our manufacturing heritage!
