Welcome to the State of California

Wind Power

Wind energy plays an integral role in California's electricity portfolio. In 2008, turbines in wind farms generated 7,331 gigawatt-hours of electricity – more than 2% of the state's gross system power. Additionally, hundreds of homes and farms use smaller wind turbines to produce electricity. Home wind turbines can help homeowners save about 25% each month from their electrical bills.
