Thousands of veterans joined Sens. Mark Udall, D-Colo., and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa; Reps. Steve King, R-Iowa, and Jerry McNerney, D-Calif.; and the American Wind Energy Association this week to push for an extension of the wind energy production tax credit (PTC).

Over 400 of the veteran signatories are currently employed in the U.S. wind energy industry.

‘Work in wind energy offers vets the opportunity to use a wide variety of skills they learned in the military – such as risk analysis, problem-solving and contract negotiation – and we're happy to have them as members of our team,’ says John DiDonato, vice president of wind development at NextEra Energy Resources.
