    Wind powers forward to reach 30 percent in four states; New Mexico emerges as a leader, growing wind power faster than any state

    Evan Vaughan, April 17, 2018 (American Wind Energy Association)

    “Wind power, the largest source of U.S. renewable electricity generating capacity, now supplies more than 30 percent of the electricity in four states, Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, and South Dakota, after strong growth in 2017…[The rapid expansion reflects wind’s] key role at the center of a transformation in the country’s electricity sector…[The U.S. Wind Industry Annual Market Report 2017 shows] the industry employs a record 105,500 men and women across all 50 states…[and] generated a record 6.3 percent of U.S. electricity in 2017…14 states generate more than 10 percent of their electricity from wind…Ranchers and farmers were paid an estimated $267 million in 2017 to lease private land for wind farm development…[and wind investment provides recession-proof career opportunities and property, state, and local tax revenue [in rural communities] to fund schools, roads and emergency services…in 70 percent of U.S. congressional districts, including 75 percent of Republican districts and 62 percent of Democratic districts.” click here for more
