In 2015, the United States, wind power accounts for about 4 percent of
overall electricity production (181.79
) but supplies significant amounts
in various states and regions.
In May 2015,
the Pacific Northwest’s Bonneville Power Administration
generated more than 40 percent of its electricity
for its 13
million residents from wind energy alone.
In Texas, record wind output in March met about 40 percent of
the demand for most of the state’s electric grid. In 2015,
Wind Power in the United States
is generating nearly 75,000 megawatts
is the intended full-load sustained output of a facility such
as a power plant.

World's Largest Offshore Wind Farm Opens
in English Channel.
100 turbines covering an area of 13.5 square miles, producing
300 megawatts, which is equivalent to the annual electricity
consumption of more than 200,000 British households.
Denmark’s array of onshore and offshore wind farms met 116
percent of its national electricity demand on July 9, 2015,
according to the energy tracking website
. The next morning, after demand had peaked, the
figure rose to 140 percent. Germany, Norway, and Sweden took the
power surplus off Denmark’s hands, storing excess electricity in
hydropower systems for later use. It’s a new record for Denmark,
where wind farms met 39 percent of the country’s electricity
needs in 2014, putting the nation of 5 million in the company of
Scotland, Germany, and other countries that are producing more
than a quarter of their power from renewable sources.
Wind Energy was producing energy for 6 million homes at the end of 2008,
Now it's up to 13 million as of 2012, providing about 3
percent of Americas energy needs.

Wind Turbine has a
1.7-megawatt General Electric turbine, which rises 432 feet above the
ground from the tip of a blade.
Takes 43 truckloads to pour close to
400 cubic yards of concrete. The concrete base is 9 feet deep and nearly
60 feet across.
When wind speeds are more than 45 mph, the blades will
lock for safety.
