In celebration of American Wind Week, which kicked off on August 11th, we’re revisiting a blog post we published last year praising the many achievements of wind power. We’ve updated our thoughts from last September with a few new observations, but the sentiment stands: wind is (still) picking up speed.
A decade ago, wind energy mostly meant giant investments, ugly legal battles and major public opposition. As recently as 3 years ago, we saw proposals in many states—good proposals by respected companies—being tossed out. Lack of public support combined with weak political legs dragged the highly visible CapeWind project through the dirt from its initial approvals in 2005, to 2017, when it was finally shut down and deemed defunct.
