ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the development of wind power in the U.S. The American Wind Energy Association chronicles the purchase and sale of wind energy and turbines by state, suppliers, owners and buyers, which indicate the size and growth of the U.S. wind power industry. The uncertainties caused by the expirations and after-the-fact extensions of the federal wind energy production tax credit (PTC) led to the lopsided pattern of wind power development during 1999 and 2004. The extension of the PTC for the first time by the U.S. Congress restored the pace of growth.
