Analyzing the economic impact of Colorado's first 1,000 MW of wind energy development not only provides a summary of jobs, land lease payments, and other revenue, but it also provides a sense of the economic development opportunities associated with other new wind project scenarios, including the U.S. Department of Energy's 20% Wind Energy by 2030 scenario. The analysis can be used by interested parties in other states as an example of the potential economic impacts if they were to adopt 1,000 MW of wind power development.
