Distributed Wind Policy Comparison Tool

A Web-based Distributed Wind Policy Comparison Tool and Guidebook helps utilities and policymakers advance the market for on-site wind generation across the nation. The Web tool's financial model measures the impact of various policy combinations on distributed wind turbine project economics and can be used to rank the "best and worst" state markets for returns on investment for various project scenarios.

Wind Energy Finance: An Online Calculator for Economic Analysis of Wind Projects

The Wind Energy Finance (WEF) calculator provides quick, detailed economic evaluation of potential utility-scale wind energy projects. The tool is designed for those who have general experience with project financial analysis but little knowledge of wind projects. Potential users include: state and local economic development officials, rural landowners interested in owning or benefitting from wind energy projects, applicants pursuing 2002 Farm Bill funding for renewable energy projects under Section 9006 and the Value-Added Producer Grant Program, and rural co-op and municipal utility officials.
