Indiana becomes the fastest growing state in Wind Energy!

Welcome to the first ever Indiana Wind Energy Week! In the last eighteen months, we have begun to embrace our full wind potential. In 2007 we did not produce any electricity from wind resources.

NYE @ The Hog Barn!

“Another fresh new year is here . . .

Another year to live!

To banish worry, doubt, and fear,

To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me

To live each day with zest . . .

Once more to right some wrongs,

To pray for peace, to plant a tree,

And sing more joyful songs!”

A Greener Indiana and Three Heads Company boogied down… Continue
