USA Leading Wind Power Producer of 2008
The U.S.A. was the world's biggest producer of wind power in 2008, generating 25GW of electricity through wind turbines. Germany, the previous world leader generated 25GW.
New wind projects made up 42 percent of the U.S.A.'s total new power-producing capacity added in 2008r, contributing 8.4GW into the grid.
These figures are expected to increase as President Obama has promised more clean energy initiatives, and the Senate Finance Committee has approved a $31 billion in tax breaks to boost green energy supplies and efficiency.
