With Xcel Energy’s new announcement that we’re seeking to build a major new wind farm in the Upper Midwest, it will have some people asking whether adding even more wind, solar and other clean energy sources is really the best move for our customers’ wallets and for the reliability of our electrical system. The fact is, our experience shows us the answer to both these questions is a solid yes. We are pursuing cleaner energy like wind and solar because it’s an affordable, reliable and secure way to generate the power we need while growing a clean energy industry that now supports 3 million jobs. Our customers want clean energy at an affordable cost, and the energy industry is rising to meet that challenge.
