First-Half US Wind Power Production Up 20% Year-Over-Year #green

U.S. energy production from wind power grew 20.14% in the first six months of this year compared to the same time frame in 2012, according to a report from the SUN DAY Campaign. Over the past decade, the nonprofit group says domestic energy production from wind has increased by a factor of nearly 16.
