According to new reports from the U.S. Department of Energy, Colorado ranks 7th nationally for wind-power generation capacity installed in 2014, and 10th for total wind power installed through last year.
Colorado had 261 megawatts of wind-driven energy production capacity installed last year, roughly the equivalent of the power needed to serve 69,600 typical homes.
As for the percentage of each state’s power generated by wind, Colorado ranks 8th, at 13.6 percent.
Also, a recent report from the American Wind Energy Association said that Colorado employs more than 6,000 workers in wind-power manufacturing, which is the third highest amount nationally.
