I remain determined to help facilitate our transition to renewable energy sources as quickly as possible. During a recent trip to Europe, I traveled to Denmark to visit the international headquarters of Vestas, one of the world’s major producers of wind turbines, and met with their Vice President for U.S. Sales and Marketing to discuss the potential for implementing this technology in the United States, and, more specifically, within our district. He referred me to two New York State wind energy companies which which I then contacted. While they are currently focusing on northern New York, a “wind map” indicates that some parts of Westchester and Rockland Counties might be suitable for future wind turbine development. Those New York communities which have participated in these projects have received sizable property tax contributions and have also benefited by the creation of new jobs. As your congressman, I will continue to proactively seek solutions to our local and national energy problems.
