This Webinar explored how communities and utilities benefit from the development of wind projects. In addition to lease payments to landowners and increased tax revenues to local governments and school districts, wind power projects create jobs, helping to stem the decline in population/customer base in many rural areas, increase demand for local services and supplies, and diversify utility resource portfolios, reducing risk and price volatility. Presenters addressed these benefits through case studies as well as presented models that can be used to estimate local economic benefits.
