Kansas is Third in Wind Energy Growth

 

The Department of Energy recently reported that Kansas is among the largest and fastest growing wind energy markets in the country.

 

In the annual Wind Technologies Market Report, Kansas ranked third among all the U.S. states in the percentage of in-state wind power generation for electricity. That’s enough capacity to generate more than 20 percent of its electricity from wind energy.

 

“It also said that in 2012, wind energy became the top source of new U.S. electricity generation for the first time.”

 

In 2012, Kansas installed 1,441 megawatts of new wind power capacity, which is enough to power 800,000 homes.
