AWEA: Okla. could become third in US for installed wind capacity
Oklahoma is poised to overtake California as the No. 3 state in the US in terms of installed wind capacity, according to American Wind Energy Association Senior Analyst Hannah Hunt. She said the state, which has more than 1,000 megawatts of installed wind capacity under development, is ranked third for wind generation due to its excellent wind resources.

Wind is efficient, cost-effective, says AWEA's Goggin
Wind is an affordable and efficient energy source capable of producing huge amounts of electricity, contrary to a recent op-ed, writes American Wind Energy Association Senior Director of Research Michael Goggin. "Modern wind technology is a testament to American innovation and manufacturing. Wind's costs continue to decline while turbines become more efficient, turning more wind into electricity than ever before," he writes.

Block Island symbolic of US offshore wind potential, says GE Renewable exec
Deepwater Wind's Block Island offshore wind farm in Rhode Island "is a very important symbol of the fact that tangibly offshore wind can work in the US," according to GE Renewable Energy Public Affairs Leader Tim Brown. "It won't be a theoretical debate. People will see it in the water, they will see it working, and they will see it supplying electricity," he said. (8/25)

Gov. Chris Christie has prevented New Jersey from becoming a national leader in offshore wind production, hurting the state's economy and potential for job growth in the process, writes New Jersey Sierra Club Director Jeff Tittel. "New Jersey has enough potential of offshore wind to meet a third of our electrical needs and power 1.2 million homes, but our governor would rather side with polluters over our clean air," he writes.
