I was poking around and found a couple of interesting sites about wind power in the U.S.
First is this page showing the status of various projects across the country.
It says that the U.S. has almost 7 GW of installed wind power generation. I think the world total is around 48 GW.
Another interesting site is this one
which is the environmental impact statement for a proposed 130 MW (0.130 GW) wind farm in northeastern Colorado. It has a pretty good summary of what goes into the site approval process, with maps and pictures and stuff about disturbing native American sites.
