10,000 megawatts and counting

What industry is installing more capacity of its product annually now than the total cumulaive installed capacity for that product at year'end 2000? If you answered wind you're right. While it might not surprise energy policy junkies it should be noted that the wind industry eclipsed the 10,000 megawatt milestone this summer and will continue scoring gains due in part to renewable energy portfolio requirements and energy credits from people wishing to reduce their carbon 'footprints'. See the details at this American Wind Energy Association's web page.
