Blow me down south
9 States have no wind generation ability at all, are not helping to build the safety of local distributed sourcing and clean energy needed for the future. The weak links in the chain are: Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Louisiana, Virginia, Kentucky. The same states that made decisions in the past that brought failure on the region is nothing if not consistent.
The states profiting most from wind ordered in Mwh produced: Texas, California, Iowa, Illinois, Oregon, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Kansas, Washington.
The newest large wind turbines being delivered now meet or beat the cost of coal, oil, and in many cases even natural gas.
