American Wind Energy Rebounded In 2014: AWEA
American Wind Energy Rebounded In 2014 AWEA
The American Wind Energy Association has released its fourth quarter 2014 wind energy industry report, and it was good news for the American wind energy industry in 2014, with more than four times more wind energy coming online than the year previously.

The report, released on Wednesday to members of the media, shows that the American wind energy industry installed 3,597 MW in the fourth quarter of 2014, bringing the years total up to 4,850 MW, and total cumulative capacity up over 65 GW.

Specifically, the fourth quarter saw the installation of 1,789 wind turbines, across 32 projects in 14 different states — Texas installed the most, with 1,118 MW, followed by Oklahoma (648 MW), Iowa (511 MW), Washington (267 MW), and Colorado (261 MW).

“Wind is gaining strength, but as recent history shows, we can do a whole lot more,” said AWEA CEO Tom Kiernan. “We’re looking forward to working with Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle so that a reasonable, responsible tax policy is in place that allows the wind industry to continue lowering costs and investing billions of dollars in US communities.”

Coming back :)
