Can my company be added to the directory?

Windustry's online directory of wind companies is not intended to be a comprehensive directory across the industry, but rather a convenience for our web site users to help them locate longstanding and reputable service providers and companies in the wind energy industry, especially those that provide services beneficial for Community Wind projects. Windustry does not endorse any wind energy company, but tries to provide useful resources for people trying to make connections in the wind energy industry.

If you think your company would be a good fit for our users, submit a request to be included in our directory. You should submit the following information by email:

  1. Company contact information
  2. Brief history of your company
  3. Brief but clear and specific description of the services and/or products you provide
  4. Three brief references from customers and/or professional contacts attesting to the quality of your product or services. It is your responsibility to make sure these references reach Windustry—simply providing a name and contact information is not sufficient. You may include references as attachments to your email in PDF or DOC format (DOCX not accepted), or ask your references to us send us your company name in the Subject.

Once this information is received, Windustry staff will review it as our schedule permits and decide if your company is an appropriate match for our web site users

Windustry reserves the right to edit, add or remove any company information from the directory at our sole discretion for any reason at any time.

Renewable Energy: Wind Power's Contribution to Electric Power Generation and Impact on Farms and Rural Communities

Published by the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) in September 2004, this report examines the amount of electricity generated by U.S. wind power and prospects for its growth, the contribution of wind power to farmers' income and rural communities, the advantages and disadvantages for farmers of owning a wind power project versus leasing land for a project, and USDA's efforts to promote wind power in rural communities.

“Wind Power's Contribution to Electric Power Generation and Impact on Farms and Rural Communities Wind power provides electricity without polluting the air or depleting nonrenewable resources. Wind power relies on steady winds to turn the blades of power-generating turbines. Because these turbines generally are located on rural lands, wind power could also provide economic benefits to farmers and rural communities.”

Job Jolt, an economic study by the Regional Economics Applications Laboratory for the Environmental Law and Policy Center, was published in November 2002. This report shows that the Midwest stands to gain significant jobs and income by switching to renewable energy and increasing energy efficiency. The report shows a real boost for the Midwest: up to 210,000 new jobs and $20 billion in additional economic output across the 10-state Midwest region by the year 2020.
