Wow! Enough #windpower installed in 2015 worldwide to power the equivalent of Japan:

The Windicator's forecast for worldwide capacity is 415GW, some 56GW higher than the final total for 2014 of 359GW. This estimate of 415GW of wind energy is capable of producing just under 900TWh of electricity in a year - roughly equal to the annual electricity consumption in Japan. When official figures emerge later this year, the final total for 2015 may turn out to be even higher, given the traditionally strong pace of project completions in the final weeks of the year. The Windicator estimates the strongest performers in 2015 in terms of capacity additions, to have been China, adding over 19GW, the US (5.9GW) Germany (4GW), India (3.1GW) Brazil (2.7GW) and the UK (1.4GW). In terms of percentage growth, the leader among states with over 1GW installed has been Brazil, with a 53% growth, followed by China (17%), India (14%), Sweden (13%), the UK (11%), Germany and France...

I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.
