I celebrated Global Wind Day in Stevensville, ON.

DMI Inc. opened their doors to show their wind turbine tower production line. It takes about a week of rolling, welding, sandblasting and painting steel into the finished product. Since 2006, DMI has employed 180 local people at their Fort Erie manufacturing plant, producing about 300 wind turbine towers a year. The community embraces Wind Energy.

3rd Annual Global Wind Day on June 15
