Missoula Independent Op-Ed: Wind Power is a Job Creator–with the Right Tax Breaks

The Missoula Independent recently published an Op-Ed column which was co-authored by Trillium’s CEO, Matt Patsky and Kristina Curtis, Senior Vice President of Green Century Capital Management and President of the Green Century Funds.
The column reads, in part:
“As investors, we look for growth stories, and until very recently, wind power had an exciting plot. The United States is now generating 20 times more electricity from wind than it did in 2000, and nearly nine gigawatts—the equivalent of nine nuclear power stations—are under construction.
Wind power provides more than nine percent of power generation in Colorado, 10 percent in Wyoming and more than 20 percent in South Dakota. That’s good news for the economy, good news for the planet and good news for investors like us who are looking to build a cleaner energy future.
What happened to change the mood and plot of the story?”
