We are the 10th-largest state geographically. Yellowstone—the first national park in the country—is only one of the many treasures people find in this big backyard of ours. Just as tourists love to explore Wyoming's beauty and grandeur, so, too, do we who live here. When it comes to our land and resources, we have a stewardship legacy.
We want to pass that legacy—better even than what we received—to future generations.
We are the top-coal producing state, we have the most uranium, we have the best onshore wind for power generation and we are in the Top 10 for oil and natural gas production. If Wyoming were a country, we would rank 10th in the world in energy production and third in energy exports.
Literally and figuratively, Wyoming energy powers our nation. Clearly, we have ample energy available here for new businesses, as well as existing and expanding businesses, to come.

The quality of life in Wyoming is remarkable. We have clean air, clean water, wide open spaces and many small communities where people can get to know one another. We have exceptional recreation and sporting opportunities. World-class hunting, fishing, climbing, skiing, rafting, rodeo—you name it, we've got it. Simply put, Wyoming is a wonderful place to be, for businesses, for the people who work in them and for everyone who lives here.
