Title: Community Wind Financing: A Handbook
Primary Authors: Kubert,Charles
Published: Environmental Law & Policy Center
Abstract: Wind power is the fastest growing source of electricity generation in the United States. As wind power generation continues to grow, these large projects and experienced developers will likely continue to dominate wind power development. Because of their scale and access to capital, these large projects are the fastest way to move towards increasing renewable energy's share of the generation mix and they provide significant economic benefits to the communities where they are located, from payments to farmers for wind rights and turbine easements to construction-related spending to permanent operations and the maintenance staff at each project.
