The Governors' Wind Energy Coalition has welcomed South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee as the new chairman and vice chairman of the coalition, respectively.

"I look forward to working with Governor Inslee and our coalition colleagues to help the wind energy industry diversify our nation's energy portfolio," says Daugaard. "We will continue working with Congress to extend the federal wind production tax credit so the industry can continue to produce rewarding careers throughout the nation.

“We will also support efforts to modernize our nation’s electric transmission system that is so vital to economic development in Washington, South Dakota and throughout the nation,” he continues. “Transmission development is as critical to economic growth in our states as the interstate highway system or our freight rail system. Spurring development of our nation’s offshore wind energy potential and supporting other state specific initiatives to support wind energy development remains a priority.”
