Xcel Energy named No. 1 in wind for 12th year
Posted: April 14, 2016

The attached release announces that Xcel Energy has been named the nation’s top utility wind provider for the 12th consecutive year, as ranked by the American Wind Energy Association. In additional to the information in the release, I wanted to pass along that Xcel Energy’s Texas-New Mexico region is setting new records when it comes to the amount of wind energy used to meet overall electricity demand. The new hourly record for our region was set on Nov. 11, 2015 when customers were receiving 60.29 percent of their power from wind at 1 a.m. On Nov. 15, Xcel Energy met 50.83 percent of our daily load with wind energy. Our new monthly wind record in Texas-New Mexico is 28 percent of load served by wind energy, set just last month. Wind energy makes up more than 15 percent of our regional mix over a year’s time.
