Vestas Creates 800 Jobs in Colorado Wind Energy Boom

With turbine orders piling up, Vestas Wind Energy announced late last week that it was creating 800 new full-time, highly-skilled jobs in Colorado. With 370 new turbines ordered in the last few weeks, the company expects to open up 1,500 positions in the state this year. “We have received U.S. orders of 740 MW in the last month alone, so our North American factories are very busy, as are factories overseas,” Vestas spokesman Adam Serchuk told the Climate Progress blog. “As far as I can see, this will be the case at least through the end of 2015.”
