“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 lifetime. 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.
