BALTIMORE (AP) - A statewide environmental group is reporting on the benefits of more wind power.

Environment Maryland says its report Thursday will quantify the state's wind energy potential and evaluate the benefits to Maryland if wind power supplied 30 percent of the nation's electricity needs by 2030.

Maryland has several land-based wind farms in operation, mostly in the western mountains.

The state also supports development of commercial wind energy projects in nearly 80,000 acres of the Atlantic Ocean off the Maryland coast.
