As America and the world grapple with the immense problem of
climate change, one energy source stands out as an abundant,
affordable and readily available supply option: wind power. The U.S.
Department of Energy’s 20% Wind Energy by 2030 Technical Report
(www.20percentwind.org) finds that wind power can supply 20
percent of America’s electricity by 2030 and reduce projected
emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the leading greenhouse gas, by
25 percent.

This fact sheet is one in a series aimed at informing decision-makers
and the public about this critically important option for America’s
energy future and countering persistent myths about wind energy.
