Columbus’ Center of Science and Industry got a visit from GE today, who displayed a 131-foot wind turbine blade to show the public and Ohio’s leaders the innovative technologies that are helping to build our clean energy future.
The tour’s stop will allow Ohio residents to add their signatures to the wind turbine blade and pledge their support for its message: “I’m helping to build America’s energy future.”
“America has the power to choose a better energy future,” said Vic Abate, vice president of GE’s Renewable Energy business. “American technology and innovation can create a cleaner, smarter, more efficient energy economy in Ohio and across America that will revitalize precision manufacturing, boost exports and create jobs, but we need the right policy at the federal level to make that vision a reality.”
Last year, the U.S. wind industry supported 85,000 jobs in all 50 states.
