New Study Finds That 40 Percent Wind Energy Can Be Reliably Integrated
A new report by the Minnesota Department of Commerce found that the state could obtain 40 percent or more of its electricity from wind and solar energy, up from its current level of nearly 16 percent, without any reliability problems. This report builds on the real-world success of states like Iowa and South Dakota, which produced more than 25 percent of their electricity from wind energy last year, and Colorado and Texas, where the main power systems have hit 60 percent and nearly 40 percent wind energy at certain points in time.

Promoting Wind Energy in the South
The Southern Wind Energy Association (SWEA) is an industry-led initiative that promotes responsible use and development of wind energy in the South. Our vision is for wind energy to become a leading source of energy in the South and our mission is to promote responsible use and development of wind energy in the South. SWEA’s geographic region covers eleven Southeastern states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
