China recently completed its first wind farm off the coast of Shanghai, according to CNN.
The project is complete before the United States has even begun construction on its first such farm, leading CNN money to conclude that China is "winning the renewable energy race." Congress' failure to pass an energy bill was cited as the primary reason the U.S. has fallen behind. The emerging renewable energy market is also creating jobs in China, CNN reports.
The farm currently accounts for less than 1% of Shanghai's energy, but the New York Time's says even that powers 200,000 households, all while reducing CO2.
