Guides, Maps, and Tools

Is your area a good place for a wind energy project? What type of wind energy facility is right for your situation—a small wind turbine or a utility-scale wind farm? How can wind energy development help your community’s economy? What regulations will you need to follow to get your wind energy project up and running? These are just a few of the questions you might have if you’re considering investing in wind energy. The resources on this WINDExchange page, overseen by the U.S. Department of Energy Wind Energy Technologies Office, are intended to help home and landowners, community leaders, utility companies, and other stakeholders weigh the benefits and costs of wind energy, understand the deployment process, and make wind development decisions supported by the best available information.
