Achieving the Wind Vision in Each State

 

Each state has the opportunity to lower electricity bills, create jobs, increase community investment, and reduce pollution by expanding the use of wind energy, according to a recent U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) report. The 2015 DOE Wind Vision report projects that nationwide, wind power can supply 10% of America’s electricity by 2020, 20% by 2030 and 35% by 2050, while delivering consumer savings worth tens of billions of dollars a year. The information found in the below state fact sheets was calculated by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) using DOE Wind Vision data.
