The article reports that the markets for three clean-energy technologies, already up nearly 70% in the last two years, will grow 600% more by 2014, to $102 billion, according to a California-based research firm. New installations of wind-powered generating plants will grow the most, from $8 billion in 2004 to $48.1 billion. A 120-MW wind farm project, dubbed Pine Tree, will push Los Angeles toward its goal of 20% renewable energy by 2017. The city consumed 1,125,000 MWh of renewables in 2004, 5% of its total energy consumption.
