Pawlenty promotes wind power
Governor Tim Pawlenty and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson have teamed up to promote the use of wind-generated power in the United States.
The Governors Wind Power Coalition hopes "to increase collaboration among states, exchange wind-related information, sponsor more wind research, and seek recommendations on federal and regional policies."
Use of windpower is expected to increase as much as 30 percent in 2008, becoming an important source of clean renewable energy for the country.
Minnesota is one of the top producers of wind power in the United States.
