Wind Energy Works... on Wall Street.

It’s no secret that wind energy’s effectiveness hasn’t caught up with its hype, but that hasn’t stopped Wall Street from jumping on board.

Seeking Alpha breaks down the top 12 stock plays in the wind energy market, noting that “Wind power generation rose over 300% between 2000, and 2006. Did you know that it provides 20% of the electricity in Denmark, 9% of the electricity in Spain, and 7% of the electricity in Germany?”

I’m not suggesting anybody invest, but the piece is a good primer on the companies that are driving the industry.
