State Siting and Permitting of Wind Energy Facilities  

Author:  | General, Siting, U.S.

The NWCC is an advocacy group to promote commercial wind development.

“Extensive discussions have been taking place around the country on the issue of siting wind energy facilities. A number of states ““ both those new to wind-power development and those already familiar with it ““ have expressed strong interest in the approaches that other states use when considering the siting of wind power plants. In response to this interest, The National Wind Coordinating Committee (NWCC) partnered with the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) in preparing this compilation of sample approaches that states, municipalities and other jurisdictional entities are taking on siting.”
