This year was supposed to be a bust for the US wind industry, after setting a record for new construction in 2012. The supposed 2013 bust, however, is shaping up as another record one.
"The wind industry posted a record year in 2012 with the installation of about 13 GW of power capacity. "This year, we expect a similar level," the Barclays analysts wrote.
Adding another 13,000 megawatts of wind power would be the equivalent of building 5 medium sized nuclear reactors. But will this happen? I will be watching closely.
