The American Wind Energy Association is predicting a record-breaking year in 2005. The association says there is 2,500 megawatt (MW) of capacity planned for installation, far more than the industry’s record of 1,696 MW in 2001. One MW of wind capacity generates as much electricity as that used by about 300 households. The association’s prediction means as many as 750,000 homes could be served by the amount of wind power installed this year.
