    WIND COULD BE A THIRD OF U.S. POWER BY 2050

    Definitive new report shows wind energy can become one of America’s top electricity sources, while saving consumers money; Industry leaders stand ready to meet report’s goals, with U.S. reaping benefits of bold new vision for wind power growth

    March 12, 2015 (U.S. Dept. of Energy/American Wind Energy Association)

This report] describes a new scenario for wind to reach 10 percent by 2020, 20 percent by 2030, and 35 percent by 2050, and provides a road map for government and industry to get there…[Other findings include: Wind development has attracted over $100 billion in private investment since 2008…The wind industry currently employs more than 50,000 people in the U.S., with a manufacturing supply chain of more than 500 factories across 43 states…By providing 20 percent of the nation’s electricity by 2030, wind energy would create an additional 230,000 well-paying jobs, $650 million in annual lease payments to landowners, and nearly $1.8 billion a year in tax payments to communities. By 2050, wind energy would create additional 600,000 well-paying jobs, $1 billion in annual lease payments to landowners, and nearly $3.2 billion a year in tax payments to communities…” click here for more
