Wind Power Development Toolkit

This toolkit provides information and materials designed to answer questions and help the user address issues associated with utility-scale, grid-connected, wind power projects. Utility scale generally refers to wind turbines with a rated power over 600 kW, and grid connected refers to large-scale regional or national grids as compared to community scale mini-grids. While some of the issues associated with large-scale wind energy are similar for small-scale wind energy, many issues are different.
