Utility-Scale Wind Energy Planning Resources

In 2002, VERA partnered with the VDPS and others to carry out the Wind Siting Consensus Building Project. The intent of this project was to build consensus on the appropriate siting of utility-scale wind energy in Vermont, with special attention to the aesthetic impact of these facilities on Vermont's scenic landscape. The project was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy and administered by the Vermont Department of Public Service. Partners in the project included VERA, Renewable Energy Vermont, and the Woodbury Dispute Resolution Center.
