Texas set a new record this spring for wind generation.
According to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), wind generation reached 10,296 MW on March 26, accounting for nearly 29 percent of the electricity on ERCOT’s grid at the time. That output was enough to power more than five million homes, according to ERCOT. The record bests the previous one set earlier in the month by more than 600 MW.
Texas, the national leader in wind generation, has more than 11,000 MW of commercial wind power capacity in the ERCOT region and more than 34,000 MW in new project study or development. Full story.
