Wind power is the most productive renewable energy source in the U.S., generating nearly half of America’s renewable energy and today’s infographic shows how much wind electricity different U.S. states generate, and breaks down wind’s share of total electricity generation in top wind power producing states.

This version of the original article by Niccolo Conte (visualcapitalist.com) has been edited [ ] and abridged (…) to provide you with a faster and easier read. Also note that this complete paragraph must be included in any re-posting to avoid copyright infringement.

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, but the U.S. has 10 states with no wind power generating facilities, all primarily located in the Southeast region.

While wind energy only made up 0.2% of U.S. electricity generating capacity in 1990, it now makes up more than 10% of U.S. electricity generating capacity, and this share is set to continue growing.

Record-breaking wind turbine installations in 2020 and 2021, primarily in the Central and Midwest regions, have increased U.S. wind energy generation by 30% but 2021’s expiration of the U.S. production tax credit is likely to dampen the rate of future installations.
