Details for APEX CLEAN ENERGY - Ad from 2021-02-20

“As yet, the wind is an untamed, and unharnessed
force; and quite possibly one of the greatest
discoveries hereafter to be made, will be the taming,
and harnessing of the wind.” —Abraham Lincoln
Today, more than 150 years after Lincoln’s writings, wind
energy is one of the world’s fastest-growing sources of
power, and for good economic reason. Generating electricity
from the wind reduces its overall cost. Wind farms run on
free fuel, making them immune to price volatility. When
the natural resources of Illinois are harnessed, consumers
benefit—through clean air, local economic growth, and a
cost-competitive energy source.
Apex Clean Energy is developing Coles Wind, a project that
will benefit Coles county through hundreds of construction
jobs, over $1.6 million annually in local landowner payments,
and more than $60 million in tax revenue for local schools,
infrastructure, and public safety over the 30-year project
Today, the wind is tamed and harnessed just as Lincoln
envisioned. The state of Illinois, which he was proud to call
home, now has an opportunity to help realize Lincoln’s hope
for the progress of our nation’s energy future. To learn more
