Written by Prognog Staff Image The American Wind Energy Association, or (AWEA), has recently announced record growth in the wind producing industry in the US for a third year in a row.  The United States now produces roughly 21,000 (MW) of installed wind power capacity at this point.

According to the AWEA, "this summer, the U.S. passed Germany to become the world leader in wind generation."

They also report that according to the US Department of Energy, "wind could provide 20% of U.S. electricity by 2030, supporting 500,000 jobs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions as much as taking 140 million vehicles off the road, and saving 4 trillion gallons of water."
