Solar projects –mostly in California, Arizona and New Mexico —  will produce 6,000 megawatts of new capacity, according to the International Business Times.

Wind power projects should add another 1,400 MW.

The Department of the Interior has set aside $41 million from the economic stimulus package to advance a “rapid and responsible” move to production of clean energy in public lands, according to the article.

More than 2,800 megawatts of wind energy industry were installed in the United States over the of the first quarter of 2009.
