Wind turbines are concentrated in West and South Texas. Data only includes areas in the state's main electricity market, ERCOT. Counties in light grey are outside of the market.
Note:ERCOT defines one megawatt (MW) as enough to power about 200 Texas homes during high demand. Data is limited to ERCOT operating areas only and includes additional capacity that will be connected to the grid in 2023.Source:ERCOT and Texas Tribune analysisCredit:Kai Elwood-Dieu/The Texas Tribune
