Kansas has the potential to be one of the country?s leading producers of wind energy; and to help spread the word,
Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and Lt. Gov. Mark Parkinson have formed the Kansas Wind Working Group to spread the word about the state?s potential to be a leading producer of wind energy.
?A wind working group can help attract new wind energy projects to the state and promote better use of this abundant natural resource,? Sebelius said.
The group will educate stakeholder groups with current information on wind energy markets, technologies, economics, policies, prospects and issues. Parkinson serves as chair of the Kansas Wind Working Group.
The Kansas Wind Working Group will be supported by the Energy Programs Division of the Kansas Corporation Commission and the lieutenant governor?s office.
