It’s American Wind Week, and the U.S. wind industry has a lot to celebrate.
The American Wind Energy Association launched Wind Week last year when wind power became the country’s largest source of renewable energy capacity. Today, the industry employs more than 105,000 U.S. workers and is building more power than ever before.
There was one notable setback to the near-term U.S. wind forecast last month, however.
American Electric Power’s Wind Catcher Energy Connection project was slated to be the largest wind farm in the United States — by a long shot.
