+ - U.S. becomes top wind producer, solar next->

Submitted by SpuriousLogic
SpuriousLogic (1183411) writes "The United States overtook Germany as the biggest producer of wind power last year, new figures showed, and will likely take the lead in solar power this year, analysts said on Monday.
Even before an expected "Obama bounce" from a new President who has vowed to boost clean energy, U.S. wind power capacity surged 50 percent last year to 25 gigwatts (GW) — enough to power more than five million homes."
