Jobs Up, Costs Down for Wind Energy


Growing wind energy revitalizes America’s rural areas and Rust Belt manufacturing centers. With more than 100,000 jobs today across every state, the industry is just getting started. New analysis from Navigant Consulting projects the industry could drive nearly a quarter million wind-related jobs by 2020, with $85 billion in economic activity over the next four years.

American ingenuity and hard work have driven the cost of wind down by two-thirds since 2009, propelling wind to contribute 30 percent of power plant capacity added over the last five years. This success offers proof that wind works for America.
