Siting Wind Farms in the Great Lakes Region: Policy Summary and Analysis

Siting Wind Farms in the Great Lakes Region: Policy Summary and Analysis

The Great Lakes region has a widely varied policy framework to govern the development of wind energy facilities on the land. A wind energy facility can be a single turbine, but more often it is a group of turbines that are constructed as part of a single development project, commonly known as a "wind farm." This article compares and contrasts Great Lakes states and provincial policies that affect wind farm development. Some jurisdictions have developed siting guidelines for local implementation; others have developed enforceable regulations while still others have a hybrid approach. The process also varies: some jurisdictions have relatively streamlined processes, while others have a more complex decisionmaking structure. The type of developer (that is, utility or independent power producer) or the size of the project can also affect which regulations, if any, apply. Siting policies and associated regulatory structures are heavily influenced by state-specific factors such as state government organization, level of electric utility regulation and how much authority is delegated to the local level.

Large-Scale Wind In The UK

Large-Scale Wind In The UK

Thanks to its long coastline and maritime climate, the UK has the best wind resources in Europe, and some of the best in the world. Reflecting this, over the last few years the country's wind industry has grown rapidly – reaching a capacity of more than 3.5 GW and becoming the global leader in offshore installations.
The 2018 Community Power State Scorecard

The 2018 Community Power State Scorecard

Originally published at ilsr.org. Each year, the Institute for Local Self-Reliance provides a score for each state’s energy policies based on how they help or hinder local clean energy action. In 2018, 21 states had a failing grade, 17 were mediocre, 11 had a passing grade, and just 2 excelled at enabling residents to act individually and collectively to take […]
