How do your community's plans and ordinances address wind energy systems? Not since the 1970s have energy issues consumed as much national attention as today. Climate change and global warming, rising energy costs, and worldwide political instability are problems stemming from our society's overdependence on fossil fuels. Yet clean, abundant sources of energy exist, and interest in wind energy is growing daily.
This Essential Info Packet provides an extensive collection of model and sample ordinances for wind energy systems large and small, along with background articles and examples of how communities are adding support for wind energy to their comprehensive plans.
