While wind is still non-existent in certain parts of the country, it is making footholds in a number of states, including New Mexico and Missouri. In 2017, these five states saw the greatest growth in wind energy generation. And while wind power has historically been strongest in the Great Plains and Midwest regions, improvements in wind power technology – such as taller turbines – have allowed for more economic wind development in other parts of the country. Currently, nine states have no wind installed at all, including almost all of the Southeast. Some of these states, like Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia, have large offshore wind potential. The U.S. currently only has one offshore wind farm operating, but as costs fall for these offshore wind projects across the world, there is a growing interest by many states to support new offshore wind projects.
