Calendar sales support grassroots activities

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

The 2014 Friends of Wind calendar focuses on stories of people from across the country who are embracing the enormous potential of wind energy. This year’s theme – Faces of Wind – profiles those individuals who are leading the way in the renewable energy industry.

The national calendar fundraiser supports Friends of Wind with proceeds from its sale going to support regional Friends of Wind activities over the coming year. The Friends of Wind program was launched in 2011 to give a voice to the often-silent majority who support wind project development and to help build grassroots support.
