States Advancing Wind Webinar: State Policies and Programs to Advance Distributed Wind Projects

Thursday, April 8, 2010 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Many states are recognizing the value of supporting ‘behind the meter’ community-scale wind energy projects at public facilities, schools, and private businesses. These projects fit neatly into local electric distribution systems and help to build local support for wind energy while providing long-term control of energy costs for the host facilities. States have supported these projects with both financial and technical assistance. This webinar will explore the economics of these distributed wind projects and state programs to support them. This webinar is the first in a series of state wind policy briefings organized by Clean Energy States Alliance’s States Advancing Wind project.
