Utilities Are Reconsidering “Low Cost” Options
Wind Power in the U.S. Today
• Inexhaustible, domestic source of electricity – in 2010 produced as much
electricity as 10 nuclear power plants
• Wind power installed 35% of all new generating capacity since 2007
• Wind energy costs continues to decline making wind energy cheaper
than new nuclear or coal plants and competitive with natural gas
• Long term contracts for wind energy have no fuel cost and thus offer
utilities a hedge against fuel price volatility risk
• Zero air impacts provides utilities a hedge against regulatory risks posed
by environmental regulations through EPA, federal and state regulations
• Wind uses no water avoiding risk posed by other energy production and
generation

Wind Turbine & Component Manufacturing
Domestic Content of U.S Wind Turbine Projects
Rapid market growth in U.S. wind energy between 2005
and today triggered a surge of investment in new
American manufacturing capabilities, causing a decreased
need for imports and shift to domestic production.
Prior to 2005, domestic content of wind turbines installed
in the U.S. was less than 25%. Today domestic content of
wind turbines and components reached 60%:
 Since 2005, manufacturers have made major
investments in the U.S. with 24 new manufacturing
facilities built in the last 2 years alone.
 Over 400 facilities manufacture components for wind
turbines today in America.
 By 2009 and 2010, imports dropped to 40% of the value
of a wind turbine according to the ITC data and DOE
analysis, and domestic content of wind turbines reached
60%.

Why Wind Power is Threatened in U.S.
» Federal Production Tax Credit (PTC) set to expire at
the end of 2012:
• Provides a level playing field for wind power
• Political climate in Washington, DC has prevented a
timely extension of the PTC
• Manufacturing jobs are threatened this year
• Investments could flow to other countries
