2000 MW OF NEW WIND PLANT BY THE END OF 1996

More than 2300 MW of wind energy capacity will be on line in the US by the end of 1996 and by the end of the decade 2000 MW of new wind plant will be in operation and another 8100 MW be operating worldwide, according to a report published by the American Wind Energy Association. The Wind Energy Status Report predicts that the US projects will be installed in 11 states in the Pacific Northwest, Texas, the Great Plains, California and the Northeast. AWEA also says components for wind turbines are currently being made in 41 states. "Watt for watt, wind energy creates 66% more jobs than natural-gas fired and 27% more jobs than coal-fired electricity generation."
