Where We're Making a Difference

The Answer is Blowing in the Wind

Our solar and wind portfolios have produced 61,800 gigawatt-hours of electricity, enough to displace the

For our nation, that means projects owned in whole or in part by Wells Fargo produced 7.4 percent of US renewable energy generation in 2012.
