Iowa is the leading generator of wind power in the United States, according to an annual report by the American Wind Energy Association.

Roughly 15 percent of the state’s electricity comes from wind generation, up from 7 percent in 2008.

Trailing Iowa is Minnesota, which is powered by 9 percent of electricity from wind. Iowa is one of the nation’s leaders in the wind industry and has the second most installed wind capacity in the nation.
