During this year's first quarter, 2,007 MW were installed across 908 wind turbines in the US. This makes it the busiest first quarter in wind since 2009, states the American Wind Energy Association AWEA. With the new turbines, installed capacity now totals 84 GW of wind power in the US.

"We switched on more megawatts in the first quarter than in the first three quarters of last year combined," says Tom Kiernan, CEO of AWEA, in a statement.
