US Reaches 50 GW of Wind Energy Capacity in Q2 of 2012

But because of the uncertainty surrounding the extension of the Production Tax Credit, incoming orders are grinding to a halt,” “Layoffs have begun up and down our American manufacturing supply chain, which the industry has so proudly has built up in support of the U.S. economy and made-in-the USA manufacturing. And when incoming orders stop, so do factories.
