Wind power grows at record pace in US

“It was the third record year in a row for the wind industry; Except 2007 was a ‘blowout’ [fantastic] year with 5244 megawatts of new electrical generating capacity added by the wind industry, which is more than twice as large as the largest prior record established in 2006.”

The City of Los Angeles just broke ground for the largest city owned wind plant in the US and expects to have 20% renewable power by 2010. That means a whole lot of coal and petroleum-based products won’t be burned to create electricity.

The speed at which municipalities, business, and governments are moving towards renewable power is accelerating, a welcome trend indeed.
