Wind Farm Economic Impact Studies

Wind Powering America compiled studies about the economic impact of wind farms in rural communities in order to compared them side by side. The studies explore the types of information gathered when undertaking an economic impact study, what kind of information is most helpful in using these studies to further promote wind energy development in rural communities, and the limitations on collecting data for these studies.
