Wind turbine generation is an old technology but new for generating electricity in the U.S. In the last three decades wind energy has received much research and development in the U.S. and continues to grow. It’s been enough of a focus that White House has set goals and the U.S. Department of Energy has accomplished advanced studies. For those interested in the wind industry it is worthwhile to forecast the generation coming from wind in the decades to come. This paper focuses on the wind generation in the U.S. that comes from onshore resources and what the future holds for total electrical generation.
