Wind Power Rankings
Jamais Cascio, 17 Mar 06

We pointed to last year's list of wind power use in the US, by state, so reader Joseph Willemssen sent us the link to this year's update from the American Wind Energy Association. California still tops the list, with 2,150MW of installed wind power production (up from last year's 2,114MW), but Texas is just zooming up the charts, coming in at 1,995MW, compared to last year's 1,288MW. Texas is likely to take the top spot in next year's ranking, due to a combination of interest and abundant wind resources.

Cumulative wind power production in the US now stands at 9,149MW, compared to last year's 6,831MW. Last year's increase in wind power was the most ever -- but the AWEA expects the 2006 number to be even bigger, potentially coming in at over 3 gigawatts of added wind power.
