Major organizations signed wind power contracts in 2015

Major brands and other emerging non-utility customers signed 52 percent, or 2,074 megawatts (MW), of the wind power capacity contracted through power purchase agreements (PPA) in 2015, according to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA).

Customers driving this new demand for wind energy include Fortune 500 companies behind household brands, like Tide and Downy, high-tech companies, universities, and major U.S. cities.

AWEA will soon release its 2015 U.S. Wind Industry Annual Market Report.
