Is Distributed Wind Power the Answer? via @greentechmedia

Is Distributed Wind Power the Answer? via @greentechmedia

(This is the first in a three-part series about distributed wind.) Modern wind comes in three sizes: small, community, and utility-scale. The first two constitute the new category of distributed wind, officially established with the formation of the Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA) last year. This follows a larger renewables trend: the push for one-megawatt to twenty-megawatt projects that fall between rooftop scale and utility scale. A landmark 2010 University of California, Berkeley (UCB) study showed such projects could be the best way to build renewable capacity quickly because it avoids many permitting, interconnection, and NIMBY complications. “The Distributed Wind Energy Association was formed to take up the cause of turbines of any size installed for the purpose of generating on-site electricity,” Jennifer Jenkins, the DWEA Executive Director, explained. ...
