What is the difference between Community Wind and Community-Shared Wind?

There are two forms of development that this campaign encourages: Community Wind and Community-Shared Wind.  

  • Community Wind: a project that is locally owned and provides a sizable percentage of power for a business, community, or public building.  
  • Community-Shared Wind: a project with subscribing members from the community.  Each of these members see their return as a credit on their utility bills instead of a dividend check.  Presently, community-shared renewables is an emerging business model that has mostly been applied to solar energy.  However, it could easily include wind energy.
