This interactive map lets you explore details and locations of all of the wind turbines in MWEC states. Zoom in close and you may be able to see the aerial imagery of the wind turbine and its shadow. This data was compiled by the USGS and was published in 2014. It is the most up to date and extensive dataset of its type.
Information about wind projects within MWEC states can now be found in our Wind Library.
The data came from OpenEI, which is a wiki jointly maintained by the US DOE, NREL, and Reegle. Each wind project has its own page in our library that includes information such as the owner, when it was built, what kind of turbines it uses, and includes an inset map.
The Wind Library has a large glossary of terms and acronyms, such as the meaning of "Distributed Wind."Read more
This graphic compares four different turbine sizes.
