Washington D.C. - August 12, 2020 (Investorideas.com Newswire) The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) today recognized Governor Jay Inslee (D-Washington) for his exemplary support of American wind power, which represents billions of dollars in investments in Washington and helped the state reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 2 million metric tons last year alone. AWEA and our members are proud to give out this award today and proud that Washington has proclaimed this week American Wind Week.
"On behalf of our 1,000+ members, I'm thrilled to present Governor Jay Inslee of Washington with a 2020 U.S. Wind Champion Award. The wind industry applauds Governor Inslee for his vision, hard work, and commitment in passing Washington's landmark 100 percent Clean Energy Economy law, which firmly establishes both Governor Inslee and the state as national clean energy leaders. Governor Inslee's focus on the role of clean energy in combating climate change is critically important for our country. Governor Inslee deserves a tremendous amount of credit for getting visibility and thoughtful discussion on these topics across the U.S. We appreciate his leadership and support, as do the millions of American families and businesses who rely on clean, affordable wind energy." - Tom Kiernan, AWEA CEO.
"EDPR was proud to assist Governor Inslee in 2019 in making Washington the third state to adopt a 100 percent clean electricity goal. During those deliberations, at Governor Inslee's urging, the renewable power industry and organized labor forged a strong and lasting partnership so that the future of energy is also the future of work for many. It is this type of visionary thinking that has made Governor Inslee's plan for a clean energy future a template for future national policy." - Scott Farris, EDP Renewables North America Senior Government and Regulatory Affairs Manager, Western Region.
