2009 was a banner year for American wind power, thanks to Recovery Act incentives according to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA).
Total installed capacity leapt 40% to 35,159 megawatts, solidifying its lead as the nation with the most wind power capacity. The next largest producer, Germany, only grew its capacity about 20% in 2009 to 25,000 megawatts.
