US states with highest installed wind energy capacity

Wind energy is one of the cleanest forms of energy. All the developed and developing countries are trying to increase the amount of wind energy they produce to reduce the usage of non-renewable energy sources. USA is second only to China in producing wind energy as an alternative energy source. The total amount of wind energy production capacity of US in 2013 was 61,108 MW and this year it is expected to increase. The following five states of the USA have highest installed wind energy capacity, according to the second quarter report of 2014, published by American Wind Energy Association.
