Last year, construction began on more than 9,000 megawatts (MW) of new wind power in the U.S., but through mid-September, construction had begun on only 4,162 MW of new wind projects, according to data collected by Industrial Info. "For all of 2009, we’ll be lucky if we see construction begin on a total of 4,500 MW of new wind projects," said Mullins.
