August 12, 2019
The American Wind Energy Association reports that demand from utilities and the Fortune 500 have taken wind power capacity and development to record levels.
A record 41,801MW of U.S. wind capacity is currently under construction or in advanced stages of development represents a 10% increase over the level of activity this time last year. The wind project pipeline grew 7% in the second quarter with 7,290MW in new construction and advanced development activity announced.
Wind power is expanding rapidly in many regions of the U.S. Over 200 wind projects are underway across 33 states, and 15 of those states have over 1,000MW of wind capacity that will come online in the near term.
