BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) — An industry group says wind energy generated a record 191 megawatt-hours of electricity last year, enough for 17.5 million homes.
Texas remains No. 1 for wind energy while Iowa is second. The report says Iowa generated more than 30 percent of its electricity from wind last year, a record for any state.
The association says the industry employed the equivalent of 88,000 full-time workers last year.
The group says tax breaks extended by Congress last year will help stabilize the industry.
