For the Wind

The U.S. has the potential to produce more than 7,200 terawatt-hours of electricity from offshore wind, according to a new report released this morning by Environment America Research & Policy Center and Frontier Group. That's almost double the amount of electricity the U.S. consumed in 2019 and is 90 percent of the amount of electricity the nation would consume in 2050 if all U.S. buildings, transportation and industry transitioned to run on electricity instead of fossil fuels.
