Kansas tops in wind power construction

Kansas has more wind power under construction than any other state, according to the American Wind Energy Association. It has more than 1,188 megawatts of wind power scheduled to come on line in 2012. But Kansas still isn’t among the top 10 states in overall wind power (Texas is No. 1). So there is a lot of room for growth. A key to that continued development is Congress’ extension of the wind production tax credit, which is set to expire this year.
