“As yet, the wind is an untamed,
and unharnessed force; and
quite possibly one of the greatest
discoveries hereafter to be made,
will be the taming, and harnessing
of the wind.” —Abraham Lincoln
Today, more than 150 years after Lincoln’s
writings, wind energy is one of the world’s
fastest-growing sources of power, and
for good economic reason. Generating
electricity from the wind reduces its
overall cost. Wind farms run on free fuel,
making them immune to price volatility.
When the natural resources of Illinois are
harnessed, consumers benefit—through
clean air, local economic growth, and a
cost-competitive energy source.
Apex Clean Energy is developing Coles
Wind, a project that will benefit Coles
county through hundreds of construction
jobs, over $1.6 million annually in local
landowner payments, and more than $81
million in tax revenue for local schools,
infrastructure, and public safety over the
30-year project lifetime.
Today, the wind is tamed and harnessed
just as Lincoln envisioned. The state
of Illinois, which he was proud to call
home, now has an opportunity to help
realize Lincoln’s hope for the progress
of our nation’s energy future. To learn
