This week is American Wind Week, an opportunity to celebrate wind energy and demonstrate how wind energy works for all Americans.
The AWEA (American Wind Energy Association) hosted the inaugural “American Wind Week” in 2017 in celebration of wind power emerging as America’s No. 1 source of renewable energy. This quickly became an annual event where wind companies and supporters host a wide variety of events around the country to show how wind works for all Americans.
Each year in August, elected officials will visit wind farms and factories across the country to show their support. It’s an initiative that STL USA is 100% behind without a wind industry we wouldn’t have anyone to provide GWO training to!

Wind week is a brilliant initiative by the AWEA and we hope to be a part of it for years to come.
