A new report has Iowa wind energy is among the best in the nation.

A report released on Wednesday shows a greater percentage of Iowa homes are powered by wind energy compared to any other state in the nation.

The American Wind Energy Association says 27 percent of the power generated in Iowa comes from wind turbines.

Iowa is number two when it comes to total wind energy production.  The turbines in the state created 15,000-megawatt-hours in the last year, which is enough to power 1.4-million homes.

Texas is still the leader in both of those categories, more than doubling Iowa’s output.
