Wind Working Group

State Wind Working Groups form strategic alliances to communicate wind's benefits and challenges to state stakeholders.

Anemometer Loan Program

Such data can also aid windfarm developers in determining whether an area is suitable for developing a large, utility-scale wind plant.

The wind map can be used as a guide to identify regions for commercial wind development.
