Executive Summary: State-Based Financing Tools to Support Distributed and Community Wind Projects and Supporting On-Site Distributed Wind Generation Projects
June 30, 2011
With funding from the Department of Energy’s Wind Powering America program, Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) created two briefing guides for state officials: Supporting On-Site Distributed Wind Generation Projects and State-Based Financing Tools to Support Distributed and Community Wind Projects. This is the executive summary of the two briefing guides. The two briefing guides describe specific policy and finance tools that states can use to support distributed-scale wind projects. Residential, commercial, and public wind projects are discussed. A background on state clean energy fund support of wind energy and existing federal financial incentives for wind development is included in the guides.
