Wind power

America has an almost unlimited resource of wind blowing off our coasts and across our lands, and we can use it to power more of our lives.

Wind power is a key ingredient for a clean and renewable energy future. It’s a huge new harvest from America’s fields, farms and coasts. America produced enough wind energy to power 35 million typical homes in 2021 – 2.7 times as much wind energy as in 2012.
