Wind Energy in California
Wind energy plays an integral role in California's electricity portfolio. In 2015, turbines in wind farms generated 12,180 gigawatt-hours of electricity - about 6.21 percent of the state's gross system power. Additionally, hundreds of homes and farms are using smaller wind turbines to produce electricity.
