During 2007, the wind power industry has already added more than 2300 MW (megawatts) to the grid, and is on track to reach 4000 MW by the end of the year (ENS). Needless to say, this increase has shattered all previous records. Texas, Colorado, Washington, and Minnesota were in the lead, with Missouri, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Iowa rounding out the pack, and with Oklahoma well on its way to becoming a major contender next year. Kansas is of the windiest states in the nation, yet Kansas wind installations came in at 12th on the list, behind states like New York and Oregon (AWEA).
