#AmericanWindWeek: A turbine in Tucumcari


In 2017, wind energy grew faster in New Mexico than in any other state. Now, the Land of Enchantment has 17 wind projects, 1,005 total turbines, and at least seven additional projects either under development or under construction. The state currently produces enough wind energy to power more than 420,000 homes.

AWEA is the national trade association of the U.S. wind energy industry. We represent 1,000 member companies and over 114,000 jobs in the U.S. economy, serving as a powerful voice for how wind works for America. Members include global leaders in wind power and energy development, turbine manufacturing, and component and service suppliers. They gather each year at the Western Hemisphere’s largest wind energy event, the AWEA WINDPOWER Conference & Exhibition, next in Denver, June 1-4, 2020. WINDPOWER 2020 will be housed within CLEANPOWER, the new exhibition hub for utility-scale renewable energy, bringing together wind power, solar power, and energy storage industries.
