Celebrate Earth Day and wind power's success during #iheartrenewables week

14 April 2014 by David Ward David Ward

It is the week before Earth Day (Tuesday, April 22) and we are asking American wind power supporters to share why they love wind energy on Twitter and Facebook.

Similar to our #iheartwind week a couple months back, we are asking supporters to use the #iheartrenewables hashtag to tell your followers, your friends, everyone why you love wind power in the spirit of celebrating Earth Day and all the successes wind power has achieved so far.

You can participate in many ways, including:

  1. Simply telling everyone why you love wind power and other renewables. For ex:  b/c U.S.  avoids enough carbon dioxide emissions a year to take the equivalent of 17 million cars off the road!
  2. Taking a picture of yourself at a wind farm
  3. Taking a picture of yourself at work, at home, or anywhere and holding up a sign for why you "heart" renewables.
  4. You can even tell us why you support federal policy, like the Production Tax Credit or PTC, that encourages American wind power's growth.
  5. There are a number of ways you can creatively show your support!

Some of our friends over at @SEIA, @ACORE, and elsewhere will be joining in on the fun as well.

Iberdrola Renewables already kicked things off with their tweet below of a wind farm using the #iheartrenewables hashtag.

So get started and remember to use the #iheartrenewables hashtag!
