2006-2016 Increase in wind capacity and generation;
Saskatchewan, Canada, USA and the World
This chart shows the relative increase in installed wind capacity, for Saskatchewan, Canada, the United States and the World, from 2006 to the end of 2016. In that time, and due to a policy of active neglect, Saskatchewan's installed wind capacity increased by 29 percent while that for Canada by 716 percent, the US: 609 percent and the World: 556 percent.
The following table shows how much electricity was generated, by the aforementioned wind capacity, over a ten-year period to end 2015 (2016 generation data is not yet available).
The data is in terawatt hours (TWh): an amount equal to one billion kilowatt hours.
One might reasonably ask why electricity generation from wind energy in Saskatchewan has grown hardly at all (19.4 percent) while it has expanded almost 1,000 percent in Canada.
