'Red states' get their own renewable energy lobbyists

Sponsored by

The Red State Renewable Alliance, which describes itself as "an ad-hoc coalition of citizens and companies dedicated to promoting the wind energy industry and its role in cultivating jobs and revitalizing manufacturing," announced its launch November 14.

The alliance's executive director is John Feehery, a Republican strategist and former spokesman for Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert and former Majority Whip Tom DeLay.

The group said its mission is to tell the full story of the success of clean renewable wind energy in traditionally conservative areas of the country and to emphasize the importance of incorporating wind power as part of an "all-of-the-above" energy strategy in the U.S.

"The Red State Renewable Alliance will work to promote wind energy and extend the wind energy production tax credit (PTC) to maintain America's leading position and to save American jobs associated with the industry, many of which are in traditionally conservative Congressional districts," according to a news announcement released by the alliance.
