If America were to take advantage of just a fraction of its wind energy potential to get 30 percent of its electricity from the wind by 2030, the nation could cut carbon emissions from power plants to 40 percent below 2005 levels. That much pollution-free energy would help states meet and exceed the emission reductions called for by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan, and help the nation meet its commitment to cut U.S. carbon pollution by 32 percent by 2030. To ensure that wind power is a central component of the Clean Power Plan, strong federal incentives are needed to help drive this clean, renewable energy.
