• A new report from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) finds that total installed wind power capacity in the U.S. grew at a rate of 8% in 2014 and now stands at nearly 66 GW, currently ranking second in the world and meets nearly 5% of end-use electricity demand in an average year.
  • Last year, wind power represented 24% of U.S. electric-generating capacity additions, and since 2007, it has represented 33% of the total.
  • According to the 2014 Wind Technologies Market Report, the DOE finds that U.S. wind energy prices are at an all-time low and are competitive with wholesale power prices and traditional power sources across many areas of the U.S.
