The cycles of wind power development


  • Jason Brown


Wind power, with its recent dramatic pace of development, has the potential to alter the energy landscape in some areas of the United States. Before 2006, wind power development was sparse. However, installed capacity doubled by 2008 and accelerated rapidly through 2012. Although wind power still accounts for a small share of the nation?s electricity supply, the recent surge in development has sparked discussion about wind?s potential as a significant source of long-term renewable energy.
