Wind power has grown tremendously in recent years, as you should well know by now. As you can see in the first chart below, it’s grew tremendously from 2007-2011, and the following chart shows that 5 states now get over 10% of their electricity from wind power — South Dakota, Iowa, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wyoming — with several others close behind that milestone. Here’s more from the Earth Policy Institute, via sister site sustainablog:
