California, Texas Lead Nation in Renewable Power Projects in First Half of 2012, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 9, 2012) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Industrial Info is currently tracking 137 U.S. renewable energy projects with a combined total investment value (TIV) just shy of $20 billion that are planned to kick off construction in the first six months of this year. While some of these may be delayed or possibly cancelled, many will proceed with construction, and the numbers provide a good indication of where the renewable energy "hotspots" are in the U.S. Regionally, the U.S. Midwest market region leads in terms of the value, although not in the actual number, for planned renewable energy projects. California and Texas lead in terms of individual states.

Information on these and other projects is available in Industrial Info's Renewable Energy Database, which provides extensive coverage on the wind energy, geothermal, hydroelectric, landfill gas-to-energy and utility-scale solar power plants throughout North America, and is now expanding coverage across the world.
