Community wind energy is locally owned, commercial-scale wind projects that optimize local benefits. Locally owned means that one or more members of the local community have a significant direct financial interest in the project.
With significant wind energy projects becoming a reality in Kansas and other states, interest in community wind energy is increasing among farmers and communities across the country. Locally owned and community based wind projects provide an opportunity to generate both energy and revenue while keeping energy dollars local and protecting the environment from air and water pollution.
