Wind Working Group

State Wind Working Groups form strategic alliances to communicate wind's benefits and challenges to state stakeholders.

Anemometer Loan Program

Anemometer data can help businesses, farmers, homeowners, and municipalities determine whether there is enough wind energy at a site to make a wind turbine investment economically feasible. Such data can also aid windfarm developers in determining whether an area is suitable for developing a large, utility-scale wind plant.

80-Meter Wind Map

The wind map can be used as a guide to identify regions for commercial wind development.

Small Wind Consumer's Guide
