Wind Energy in the U.S.

Wind energy is on the rise. Between 2000 and 2020, the total electricity generated from wind in the US increased from 6 billion kWh to 338 billion kWh.1 Wind energy is predicted to save “consumers $280 billion by 2050”2 and it’s also affordable with wind generation agreements usually offering 20-year fixed pricing. Wind energy also reduces emissions. In 2013, 250,000 metric tons of air pollutants, including sulfur dioxide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, and particulate matter was avoided.2 In 2019, “Wind energy avoided 198 million metric tons of CO2”3 and by 2050, wind energy will avoid 2.3 gigatonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.2
