Bullock attended the American Wind Energy Association’s Montana State Forum, hosted by Montana State University. Environmentalists, wind industry representatives and officials from the Environmental Protection Agency gathered to talk about the future of wind as a renewable energy source in Montana.

Wind advocates see it as an opportunity for a boom in their industry, as the plan is designed to move the country toward clean energy.

“We have incredible potential for wind energy,” he said after his speech.

Montana’s target is to cut its carbon emissions levels from power plants 47 percent by the year 2030.

Each state including Montana is expected to come up with a plan for meeting its carbon emission reduction goal by 2018. This objective allows the state a comfortable timeline for planning.
