EERE Success Story: North Carolina Legislators Tour Amazon Wind Farm

Aug. 11, 2017

Earlier this year, the Southeastern Wind Coalition, one of the U.S. Department of Energy's Regional Resource Centers, organized and led North Carolina state legislators on two tours of the Amazon Wind Farm U.S. East, the first wind energy project in the state. The tours of the site near Elizabeth City, North Carolina, were meant to educate stakeholders about the project's economic benefits and potential impacts, including those to military operations as there is a Navy radar system in the region.
