Distributed wind opportunities include:

  • The National Distributed Wind Network addresses gaps in understanding distributed wind energy’s role in the clean energy transition. Participation in the network is open to any individual interested in distributed wind energy deployment: developers; original equipment manufacturers (OEMs); utility representatives; federal, state, or local government representatives; tribal members; individual customers; students; community organizations; and researchers. View the recording of the March 2024 National Distributed Wind Network Webinar to learn more. Join the network.
  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) offers energy programs that can fund energy audits, renewable energy development assistance, and system installation. USDA Rural Development offers renewable energy financing in the form of grants and guaranteed loans.
  • The Clean Energy to Communities (C2C) program connects local governments, electric utilities, community-based groups, and others with experts from across the U.S. Department of Energy's national laboratory complex and their customized, cutting-edge analysis. Through unbiased technical support to communities across the country, C2C accelerates the deployment of clean energy systems that reflect local and regional priorities.
