Wind power is the most productive renewable energy source in the U.S., generating nearly half of America’s renewable energy. America’s wind energy generating states are all primarily located in the Central and Midwest regions of the nation, where wind speeds are highest and most consistent. Texas is the runaway leader in wind, generating over 92 Terawatt-hours of electricity during a year, more than the next three top states (Iowa, Oklahoma, and Kansas) combined. While Texas is the top generator in terms of wind-powered electricity, wind only makes up 20% of the state’s total electricity generation.

The United States currently relies heavily on fos-sil fuels to heat our homes, fuel our cars, power our machines and produce electricity, harming our health and our climate. Across the country, however, America is beginning to embrace the promise of clean, renewable energy. Today, the U.S. gets about 11.5% of our electricity from wind, solar and geothermal sources, up from about 0.6% two decades ago.
