After reaching 1,000 MW of wind energy in 1985, it took more than a decade for wind to reach the 2,000-MW mark in 1999. Since then, installed capacity has grown to 26,274 MW (as of January 31, 2009).

Today, U.S. wind energy installations produce enough electricity on a typical day to power the equivalent of more than 6.5 million homes.
