Utility Wind Project Size by County and State: 2019

Metadata Updated: August 28, 2023

This map illustrates the variety of median project capacity sizes across the United States for wind projects whose total nameplate capacity is greater than or equal to 1 MW. The absence of projects in the southeastern United States is attributable to low average wind speeds (United States - Annual Average Wind Speed, AWS Truepower and National Renewable Energy Lab). Hurricane strength winds are not usable with current technology. Median project capacity is a function of the statewide capacity and the number of projects within the defined area. Data is from 2019 and is current as of Oct. 2020. Contact Sam Roodbar at (916) 651-0477 or John Hingtgen at (916) 510-9747 for questions. Data retrieved from Energy Information Administration (EIA-860) and Wind Performance Reporting System (WPRS)
