Nevada wind resources

The U.S. state of Nevada has moderate potential capacity for onshore wind power generation, ranking 29th among the states. The NREL estimates[1] that the potential for 7.2 GW of wind generation capacity exists in Nevada, which could generate 17,709 GW·h per year (roughly 60% of the state's electric demand[2]).

As of 2013 Nevada has just 152 MW installed in one farm, the Spring Valley Wind project, which commenced operation in 2012.[3]
