More Power Added In 2012 From Wind Than Natural Gas

The American Wind Energy Association said on Wednesday that the industry added installations totaling 13,124 megawatts in new capacity in 2012, Bloomberg reported. That’s 42% of all new power supply added in the U.S., more than from natural gas. Much of the impetus for the surge in new wind installations comes from the Dec. 31 expiration of a wind-production tax credit, and the majority of the installations—8,380 megawatts’ worth—came online in the fourth quarter. Production of new installations has since plummeted.
