According to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), every state in the United States has either an operational wind energy project or a wind-related manufacturing facility, or both:
Nearly 900 utility-scale wind projects – which represent over 60,000 megawatts – are installed across 39 U.S. states and Puerto Rico. There are also 559 wind manufacturing facilities spread across 44 states.”
The chart below printed in “The Atlantic” shows where and when wind energy production records were set. In May, 2013, for example, Colorado derived over 60 percent of the state’s electricity from wind power!
