In addition to the announcement of a 150-MW wind power project in Nevada - the first wind farm in that state - Denise Bode of the American Wind Energy Association had an exciting announcement of her own. According to Bode, the U.S. wind industry has now "installed 50 GW of total electric generating capacity...enough to power 13 million typical American households - as many as in Nevada, Colorado, Wisconsin, Virginia, Alabama and Connecticut combined...as much as 11 typical nuclear plants or 44 coal powered plants." Impressive!
