For the past five years, new wind
power project installations have
been expanding at an average rate
of 32% per year. Although the current
economic crisis has slowed growth
for 2009, wind power installations
are still expected to be strong,
due in part to the recently-passed
economic stimulus legislation. Within
a few years, wind power installations
are expected to return to and
exceed 2008 levels. Wind industry
companies all along the supply chain
will need parts suppliers, workers,
and contributing businesses.
Become part of this growing
industry as it ramps up to provide a
significant amount of the country’s
power needs from wind – a clean,
domestic, renewable resource.
