The Big Question: What is Your Prediction for the North American Wind Power Market Post 2015?

Renewable Energy News - Mon, 07/21/2014 - 13:16

Today wind project development in the U.S. is at an all-time high. The production tax credit (PTC) language was changed at the close of 2012 to allow projects to take advantage of the PTC as long as they began construction before the end of 2013 and finished it by 2015. As a result of that new language, developers are rushing to get all that wind in the ground. AWEA predicts that 2014 and 2015 will be great years for annual installed wind capacity in the U.S. But what happens next really is the big question.
