Since 1999 the average amount of electricity generated by a single turbine has increased by about 260%. With continued technology improvements and policy support, DOE estimates as much as 20% of projected U.S. electricity demand could be met by wind power by 2030. In Colorado, for example, Xcel Energy has grown its wind capacity from 32 megawatts in 1998 to a projected 2,800 megawatts in 2016 , at which time 30 percent of the utilitys power will come from wind. SOLAR The price declines have been even more dramatic in solar where a solar module has dropped to 80 cents a watt from $3.40 a watt in 2008. It is not a coincidence that in the same period of time solar PV deployment increased ten-fold to 7,200 megawatts.
