In its ongoing effort to promote the development of renewable energy resources the Department of Energy’s Secretary Steven Chu announced that $25 million will be awarded to the Wind Technology Testing Center in Massachusetts. This money is awarded from the U.S. government American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which was enacted to support the development of innovative forms of renewable energy sources while simultaneously creating jobs.
"This is part of President Obama's broad agenda to make sure that our country leads the world in capturing the clean energy jobs of the future," said Secretary Chu. "As the world moves toward a significant expansion in wind power, the test blade facility will help make sure that the best, most efficient wind turbines are built right here in America. Not only will it create jobs and help us achieve energy independence, it will mean cleaner air, cleaner water, and fewer greenhouse gas emissions."
IDT Energy in New York is equally committed to the promotion of renewable energy sources and encourages its customers to stay informed of recent developments in this area and to “switch and save” whenever possible.
