This article reports on wind power in the U.S. related to Spain's Iberdrola Renovables corporation. The article discusses green and clean energy in the U.S. and the availability of wind to generate electricity, noting that the U.S. output makes up more than 40% of Iberdrola's results. Information is provided on renewable electrical power, the reduction of carbon emissions, and Iberdrola's finances and acquisitions.
