County leaders are working with the wind industry to responsibly develop wind energy in their communities—protecting public safety while respecting individual property rights and promoting development. NACo and the Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA) recently published “County Strategies for Successfully Managing and Promoting Wind Power,” which shares criteria to consider when planning for wind installation of various scales and model ordinances to guide development. NACo will be hosting a webinar on managing and promoting wind power on Thursday, December 6 from 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm. Learn about this new publication and hear first-hand experiences of county planners.
