This story highlights a Colorado community where a Danish company is scheduled to open the world’s biggest factory making towers for wind energy, The New York Times reports.

It is also “one of the last cities in the country where steel is poured for making rail,” according to the article.

“Steelworkers have toiled in this unlikely spot in south-central Colorado since the days of the cowboys and the railroad barons. Renewable energy, on the other hand, is a new concept, mostly on the horizon.”

It is interesting to read the comments of some of the workers who switched from the mill to a new job.
