The American Wind Energy Association said the growth of wind power was helped by a federal stimulus package that extended a tax credit and provided other investment incentives for the industry. According to the association, wind projects account for more than a third of all the new electric generation installed in recent years, while over the last six years, domestic wind turbine production has grown twelvefold, to more than 400 facilities in 43 states. A recent study found that in 2012 the industry would support 78,000 jobs, but that number could fall to 41,000 in 2013 without an extension of the production tax credit.
