US sees record numbers of wind farms in 2012, but it's not the only country expanding

The US installed a record number of wind farms in 2012, totaling 13.2 gigawatts of capacity, according to a report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The surge in production is attributed to two factors, namely falling costs for wind power and a production tax credit that was due to expire on December 31st. As a result in the surge in production, the US now produces 60 gigawatts of wind energy, which is about six percent of the nation’s total energy outout.
