According to the American Wind Energy Association’s newly released US Wind Industry Third Quarter 2019 Market Report, there is now more than 100 GW of wind energy operating across the US enough to power 32 million American homes. The modern US wind industry was born in California in the 1980s. Starting from humble beginnings, the industry started to grow quickly in 2008. At the beginning of that year, the country only had 25 GW of wind power, but in the 11 years since, the industry has delivered an additional 75 GW of power to American consumers.

More specifically, the US has reached 100,125 MW of wind energy, with more than 57,700 wind turbines spinning across 41 states and two US territories. This milestone was reached as developers installed eight new wind projects totaling 1,927 MW in the third quarter, representing the highest third quarter for installations on record. Installations for the year total 3,667 MW, representing a 123% increase over the first three quarters of 2018.
