Fast Facts about California Wind Energy

+ Wind energy projects totaling approximately 5,812 megawatts (MW) of capacity are operating in California today,1 providing enough electricity to power more than 2 million California households.2 This represents more than a tripling of wind energy capacity since California's Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) law was adopted in 2002.

+ In 2012, California wind projects generated 9,152 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of electricity - 4.6% of all power generated within California.3 In the same year, out-of-state wind projects generated 9,983 GWh of electricity for California, representing 10% of total power imports.3 Combined, wind projects supplied 6.3% of California's total system power,3 enough to power all homes in Sacramento, Santa Clara, and San Diego Counties combined.2

+ CalWEA expects wind energy to provide close to 7% of California's electricity supply in 2014.
