California Wind Power

California saw a surge in new wind farms last year, taking its wind power capacity to 5,544 megawatts. That put it second in the nation behind Texas, which has more than 12,000 MW of installed wind capacity.  The total system peak electricity requires are about 27,426 megawatts. One megawatt provides enough electricity for about 1,000 homes.  (Grist, 4/16/2013)
