Windustry continues a series of two-day regional conferences on Community Wind and Small Wind. The series, entitled Community Wind Across America, kicked off in October with the first regional conference in Denver, Colorado.
The conferences feature a two-track program, covering both Community Wind and Small Wind. Each track will include practical “how to” information, overviews on permitting, local, state and national policies, and options for financing. The Small wind program will cover:
- Best Practices for Siting Wind Turbines
- Examples of how Small Wind can work for you
- Updates from the Small Wind Certification Council
- How to select an Installer
- Small Wind Project Economics
Conferences are scheduled in the following regions in 2010:
- Midwest: November 15-16, St. Paul, Minnesota
- Mid-Atlantic: November 30 – December 1, State College, Pennsylvania
Registration is now open. Discounted prices are available with early registration.
Community Wind Across America promises to cover the full range of what’s needed to advance opportunities for locally-owned wind energy production. It is for all who are interested in developing wind energy, including farmers, ranchers, rural landowners, municipal utilities, elected officials, town planners, tribal representatives, economic development professionals, business leaders, investors, bankers, and community leaders.
Support for Community Wind across America comes from U.S. Department of Energy funding and national sponsor, Nordic WindPower. Colorado Governor’s Energy Office is a platinum sponsor for the Rocky Mountain Region event, which is also sponsored by North American Windpower, WindLogics and Western Area Power Administration.
