Wind could provide 20% of the nation’s energy: “This is the equivalent of taking 140 million cars off the road”
For under 2 cents a day per household, Americans could get 300 gigawatts of wind by 2030. That would:
- Reduce carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation by 25 percent in 2030.
- Reduce natural gas use by 11 percent.
- Reduce cumulative water consumption associated with electricity generation by 4 trillion gallons by 2030.
- Support roughly 500,000 jobs in the U.S.
