The Wind Energy Siting Handbook
The Wind Energy Siting Handbook was developed by the AWEA Siting Committee, in collaboration with Nixon Peabody LLP and Tetra Tech EC, Inc., to inform wind energy developers and other interested parties about environmental siting issues relevant to land-based commercial-scale wind energy project development in the United States.
This handbook has been designed to provide technical information and useful tools based on the industry’s collective experience in siting wind energy projects and assessing potential impacts.
