January 04, 2016

As of November, wind power in the U.S. reached a capacity of 70 gigawatts, a new milestone for the industry. That’s enough electricity to power 19 million homes, or the total electricity demand of Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, and Wyoming, the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) says.

The news came just days after Congress extended the production tax credit and alternative investment tax credit for wind power.
