Yanira Vega, Oak Creek Energy Systems, was the recipient of our 2016 AWEA WINDPOWER scholarship:
I am honored to have been awarded this year’s scholarship to attend AWEA WINDPOWER16 conference and give special thanks to sponsors American Wire Group and EDF Renewable Energy. As a newcomer to this industry, the conferenced allowed me to be surrounded by people who are passionate about the wind industry who provided me with insights into what it takes to succeed in the industry. I enjoyed learning about the future of Wind Energy and what we have to offer. This experience, sharing ideas and stories has confirmed that I am in the right path for my career goal and that women can and will make a difference. This amazing experience would not have been possible without your generous support. Thank for enabling this opportunity!”
