Wind Energy Resource

Jan. 5, 2012

There are many websites and resources available to consumers and businesses to help make informed decisions about renewable energy. The Center for Rural Affairs is one such resource providing information for Wind Energy development. The Center indicates three objectives to assist in wind development:

  • Encourage more wind development in state and federal policy, including policies that create ownership opportunities for people who work on wind farms and support local business.
  • Monitor transmission regulatory policy to ensure wind energy is given an equal ability to compete on the existing energy grid.
  • Ensure that new transmission capacity is built in high-wind resource areas.
