The wind industry is growing in Missouri. Here's why:
- Missouri's central location and extensive transportation system ensure efficient access to customers and suppliers. Missouri is located within 600 miles of 52% of U.S. manufacturing establishments and 50% of all U.S. households.
- Missouri has a large, highly educated, and low-cost workforce. Missouri has specialized wind energy training programs across the state for ccupations relevant to the wind industry, including electricians and wind turbine technicians.
- Missouri's education and research centers support innovation and growth. New departments established to support the growing interest in alternative energy include the Missouri University of Science and Technology's Office of Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engagement, and Washington University in St. Louis's department of Energy, Environmental, and Chemical Engineering – the only one of its kind in the nation.
- Missouri's low-cost, pro-business environment helps companies prosper. In addition to being among the top ten pro-business states according to Pollina for five years in a row, Missouri also ranks in the top 10 for regulatory environment and corporate, unemployment, and property tax indexes.
