Instantaneous output reached a record of 10,296-MW, beating the previous record set earlier this month by more than 600 MW. The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) reports it was a record for any U.S. power system. Of the total generation at the time, 8,863 Mw came from other regions, mostly from West Texas, and 1,433-MW came from the Gulf Coast.
The ERCOT region has more than 11,000-MW of wind capacity with nearly 8,000-MW of new projects in development.
