About National Wind Watch
National Wind Watch® (NWW) is a coalition of groups and individuals working to save rural and wild places from heedless industrial wind energy development. Through its web site, NWW promotes awareness and documents the negative impacts of industrial-scale wind turbines on the environment, economy, and quality of life.
Energy security and the need to reduce pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions are serious issues. Therefore, people should not be distracted by symbolic or “feel-good“ gestures that fail to meaningfully address these issues and in fact do substantial harm. NWW advocates an intellectually honest assessment of the benefits and costs of industrial wind development. The objective is to be a resource of information and assistance for individuals and local groups seeking the facts about industrial wind power that are not provided by the industry and its promoters.
Most of the material on this web site does not originate from NWW itself; it is presented without commentary, and the sources are provided. News items and documents are chosen to provide a central reference library of material that is not usually publicized by the industry and its supporters.
Besides the main web site, the continually updated news, documents, pictures, and alerts are also available for mobile devices via an Android app (“Wind Watch News”), a Kindle app (“Wind Energy News”), Apple News (“National Wind Watch”) for iPhone and iPad, Google Newsstand (via Android or iOS app), Facebook, Twitter, and subscription to a daily e-mail.
National Wind Watch provides a means for diverse groups fighting inappropriate wind energy projects to share information and strengthen each other. All of the work for NWW is by unpaid volunteers with many other demands on their time and resources but who consider this effort an important contribution to protecting our world.
NWW receives no support from any industry or political interests. Funding comes only from concerned individuals, representing a broad range of perspectives but united in recognizing industrial wind as destructive and a false solution.
All contributions are tax deductible.

In May 2005, citizens, including environmentalists and energy experts, from ten states representing several regions of the U.S. met to share their concerns about the risks and related impacts of industrial wind power. National Wind Watch emerged from that conference with the goals of providing a central resource of information to counter predominantly positive reporting about industrial windpower and helping to increase communication among “wind warriors”. It is a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation registered in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
