As the turbine turns

The US added enough turbines to power 400,000 more American homes in the second quarter of this year. The wind industry in the US is expected to grow 45 percent for 2008.

As far as job creation goes, the article says "eight new wind turbine component manufacturing facilities opened in the U.S. this year, nine were expanded and 19 new facilities were announced."

What the future holds due to the current economic freakout is anyone's guess, though.
