Wind Power Development Tutorial


Wind power is on a 25% annual growth curve. Looming carbon caps will pressure munis and IOU’s to add wind to their power supply. The capital is flowing. And FERC is actively addressing transmission access; soon the grid will be able to absorb much larger volumes of wind-generated power.

What does it really take to bring a wind farm successfully to market? What can the numbers look like, and what kinds of business models and financing vehicles will be best suited to your unique needs?
