Oklahoma has faced steep cuts to its state education budget in recent years, but wind payments have helped bridge the gap for many small-town districts.





Earlier this year, the U.S. Energy Information Administration stated that in 2021 over 17 GW of wind projects expanded capacity. For they came online in the United States. Thereby increasing U.S. wind energy generation by 30%. That’s to 135.1 GW. Another 7.6 GW was expected to come online in 2022.

According to the World Economic Forum, wind power makes up nearly 8.5% of US power generation. Moreover it is the country’s most productive renewable energy source. States generating the most wind power are Texas, Iowa, and Oklahoma, they are winning. Also it does not come as a surprise that 5 out of the top 10 wind projects gone there. I mean are in development in 2022 are coming from these states.

FirmoGraphs monitors infrastructure wind projects from the concept to commercial operations and maintains this information in a uniform database, dashboards, and maps. This business intelligence is provided to interested parties such as U.S. infrastructure contractors. Data is sourced from industry news and filings with utility regulators in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

However, I wrote before:

Thanks to the state’s large wind farms and deregulated electricity grid, miners can access power at a fraction of the cost of other locations. According to a BanklessTimes data analysis, renewable energy now powers 60% of Texas’ BTC mining operations. This has helped miners to boost their margins, with many now earning between 60% and 80%.

So wind makes a big difference in energy! Always has, always will!
