Renewable energy creates jobs and stimulates the economy while decreasing harmful pollution. Wyoming has an opportunity to join many other states and nations in embracing the benefits that renewable energy can provide. We strongly advocate for the greater use of renewable energy to ease the economic transition within Wyoming from coal and other extractive resources and to promote a more sustainable energy future.
The Resource Council launched our RENEWyoming campaign in 2017 to provide education and information to increase interest in renewable energy in Wyoming. The campaign involves storytelling through video, print, and social media, as well as public information that provides more in-depth discussion on opportunities and barriers associated with renewables in Wyoming.
