Wind Generation in Texas (ERCOT Region)

The month of June ended with very steady and strong wind generation in Texas, as output held near 9,000 MW for four days straight.  That helped June average 5.45 GW of wind output, vs 4.70 GW last year and 3.66 GW in 2012.

With significant additional generating resources installed at the beginning of the year, output should reflect that capacity growth through the summer, though July-Sep is historically low.
