(Last updated August 11, 2023)
When you think of Texas energy, you may think about oil derricks and natural gas pumps. But wind turbines have become a prominent part of the landscape of the Lone Star State. Texas leads the nation in wind energy generation. The August ChooseEnergy.com® Wind Generation Report analyzes the latest U.S. Energy Information Administration data to show wind generation by state.
According to the EIA’s most recent data, Texas produced 26.4% of the nation’s electricity generated by wind in May. That’s more than double the amount of wind power produced by the next state, Iowa.
