What is community wind?

Community wind projects are locally owned or initiated by farmers, investors, businesses, schools, utilities, or other public or private entities, and they optimize local benefits. The key feature is that local community members have a significant and direct financial stake in the project beyond land lease payments and tax revenue. Projects may be used for on-site power or to generate wholesale power for sale, usually on a scale greater than 100 kW.

    Thank you for the the accurate definition. It has more to do with local participation in most cases – in the form of ownership and control. Information taken from http://essaydune.com/buy-term-paper/. I will borrow that definition for my term paper on Economics. Thank you.
