7 Future Wind Farms (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The ongoing Gulf oil spill crisis is a painful reminder why we need to heavily invest in clean energy technology. With the announcement last month of the United States' first offshore wind farm, Cape Wind, hopes have risen for other proposed offshore wind projects. Onshore, the US was the world's leading wind power producer in 2008, though it still accounts for only 2% of our electricity.

Here are 7 wind power projects in the works, offshore and onshore, to help get the US on track toward a clean energy future.

(Please note--the photos are of various completed wind farms.)
