While installed wind capacity has nearly tripled in the US over the last four years, there still remains zero installed capacity in Connecticut. For those who are interested, the 50GW of installed capacity represents approximately 12.5GW of actual capacity given generous assumptions about actual output. This is about the size of 10 large coal fired power plants. You should do some research to ask yourselves how many coal-fired power-plants have actually been taken offline as a direct result of wind substituting for it.
