Juhl Wind, Inc. Participates in United States Senate Rural Summit Focused on Creating Jobs for Rural America
WOODSTOCK, Minn., April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Juhl Wind Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: JUHL, the “Company”), the Leader in Community Wind is pleased to announce that Dan Juhl, Chairman and CEO of Juhl Wind, Inc. presented the benefits of Community Wind at the U.S. Senate’s Rural Summit held on April 28th in Washington D.C. The Summit was hosted by U.S. Senator Blanche Lincoln, the Chair of Rural Outreach for the Senate Democratic Caucus and included business leaders from various sectors. The keynote speaker was former President Bill Clinton whose remarks particularly focused on creating jobs in rural America through new and sustainable sources of energy like wind power.
As a long-standing leader in the renewable energy industry, Mr. Juhl represented the wind power industry and specifically extolled the benefits of Community Wind. “As our government considers ways to stimulate our rural economy, I stressed how local ownership through Community Wind development, not only provides initial construction jobs, but more importantly it provides the long-term economic activity for 20 plus years as our wind farms are owned and operated by our farmer partners,” stated Dan Juhl. “While it may cost $4 plus million to install one 2 megawatt turbine, there is only about $500,000 of local construction activity. However, that same turbine derives $500,000 a year in revenue – or $10 million over each 20 year period. That is why we are so committed to ensuring that our wind farms our owned by the people of rural America vs. larger utility conglomerates based hundreds of miles away – and sometimes from other countries.”
