USGS & DOE Release Nationwide Wind Turbine Map and Database

USGS & DOE Release Nationwide Wind Turbine Map and Database

Press Release and Publication

 

The U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Department of Energy, in partnership with DOE’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the American Wind Energy Association, released the United States Wind Turbine Database and the USWTDB Viewer to access this new public dataset.


The database currently contains data from more than 57,000 turbines, constructed from the 1980s through 2018, in more than 1,700 wind power projects spanning 43 states plus Puerto Rico and Guam. Users can interact with the data using multiple filters and colorings to allow wind projects across counties, states or regions to be quickly scanned for unique qualities.

 

More than 57,000 Turbines are on Display
