Introduction to Landowner Wind Energy Associations

Have you been approached by a wind developer? Are you interested in leasing your land for wind development but want to make sure you are getting a fair deal?

This Introduction to Landowner Wind Energy Associations (LWEA) provides an overview to this model of landowner participation. A landowner wind energy association bridges the gap between full ownership participation and simply leasing your land. This model allows landowners to come together and combine their resources, which provides greater negotiating power with the developer. The association model can also be used to provide financial benefits to all landowners in the association, not just those who host the turbines. Download the two-page handout to learn more.
