Wind power in North Dakota
North Dakota is a leading U.S. state in wind power generation with 14.7% of the state's electricity generation coming from wind in 2011. At the end of 2011, wind power in North Dakota had 1445 megawatts (MW) of installed capacity. At 50 meters (160 ft), North Dakota was listed as having the greatest potential for wind power, but at current heights of 100 meters (330 ft), it has dropped to fifth or sixth place. Just as in Texas, the construction of new wind farms is transmission line limited.
