In 2021, wind energy generated within California totaled 15,173 gigawatt-hours (GWh) or 7.8 percent of California's in-state generation portfolio. Wind energy power plants generating in California during at least part of the year had a total capacity of 6,281 megawatts.

Note: Listings that show “CAISO In-State Wind Generation” indicate an estimate has been used in place of Wind Generation Reporting System (WGRS) data. WGRS came into effect for the 2014 calendar year. Starting in 2015, CAISO generation data may be published as a preliminary estimate until validated WGRS data becomes available. The CAISO estimates do not always carry the source county data so the default is “ALL” to refer to counties in California.
