The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) today released its First Quarter Wind Power Market Report, announcing that the U.S. wind energy industry is on track to install over 3,000 megawatts (MW) of wind power in 2007, with Texas likely to account for about two thirds of the new installations.
Over 100 MW have newly come online in the U.S. so far this year, and over 1,000 more are under construction in Texas alone, according to AWEA. (One megawatt of wind, on average, generates as much electricity as 250 to 300 homes use.)
