Wind Turbine Component Manufacturers
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Wind Prospector tool is a web-based Geographical Information System that supports resource assessment and data exploration for wind development. Wind Prospector includes a data layer dedicated to the locations of U.S. wind turbine and component manufacturing and supply chain facilities. Corporate headquarters, service facilities, material suppliers, R&D and logistics centers, and smaller component manufacturers (e.g., bolt manufacturers) are not included. The list of facilities included is not intended to be exhaustive.
Utah Offices & Organizations
Interwest is a regional trade association representing developers and manufacturers of large-scale renewable energy, working for the responsible expansion of renewable energy in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming.
This economic impact study was conducted by Development Research Partners and analyzed rural utility-scale renewable energy projects constructed in 11 counties in Utah. These projects account for 2,275 megawatts of nameplate capacity from solar, wind, and geothermal facilities over 10 megawatts. The report analyzed 31 projects built in Utah (5 under current development or construction slated for completion by 2023) which result in significant economic benefits to rural Utah.
Utah Clean Energy is Utah’s independent resource for clean energy policy, regulatory, and consumer information.
