Wind energy plays an increasingly important role in San Diego’s electricity portfolio. According to the Electric Power Research Institute, the cost of producing wind energy has decreased nearly four fold since 1980. San Diego-based wind companies have the tools and talent necessary to capitalize on this growing market and provide resource-efficient, clean wind energy to power the region and beyond. Wind energy also creates jobs. The America Wind Energy Association estimates that through the early 1990s, 1,200 direct jobs in California’s wind industry, with as many as 4,000 indirect jobs, were created.
