April 2008 - In March, Vision-Ease Lens Worldwide announced that it is purchasing 16 million kWh of Minnesota wind energy for their Ramsey, Minnesota eyeglass lens factory. The purchase is enough to supply 100% of the electricity needs for the Vision-Ease facility for one year and is the largest green energy purchase in Minnesota to date. Vision-Ease is purchasing the wind energy from Connexus Energy, one of 28 member cooperatives distributing electricity supplied by Great River Energy.
