The pipeline of wind farms under construction or in advanced development totals 28,668 MW, a 34 percent increase compared to the end of 2016, according to the U.S. Wind Industry Fourth Quarter 2017 Market Report. That means tens of billions in additional infrastructure investment is on its way to the U.S.
Wind power continues to lift the American economy. The industry closed 2017 strong, delivering 7,017 megawatts (MW) of new wind power capacity. That new capacity represents $11 billion in new private investment. There are now 89,077 MW of wind power installed across 41 states, enough to power 26 million American homes.
With wind power closing 2017 strong, we are excited to bring that momentum to WINDPOWER 2018, the largest wind energy networking event in the Western Hemisphere.
